March of DimesOcean Creek Resort is raising money for the March of Dimes this spring.According to the March of Dimes, one in every 10 babies are born prematurely in the United States. Last year South Carolina had a disheartening preterm birthrate of 10.8%. The March of Dimes works to lower these rates through research, education and awareness.

Crystal Hummer, executive director of the Myrtle Beach March of Dimes, said this effort is an important one.

“By helping mothers and doing constant research, we can help save so many lives,” Hummer said. “These little unborn babies deserve the best care so they can enter the world healthy and happy.”

Beginning on February 2 until April 23, 2016, Vacation Myrtle Beach resorts will be collecting money for this non-profit group in a variety of ways.

“We are so excited to be working with VMB resorts,” Hummer said. “They are so dedicated to helping with this cause and we know their guests are as well.”

This is the fourth year VMB resorts have helped raise money as a group for March of Dimes, raising nearly $30,000 over the past three years.

Guests will be able to donate online when they book, at the front desk when they check in, via Ocean Creek Resort’s fundraising link ( or over the phone. Name cards will be posted on the wall behind the check-in desks with the names of all who donated.

Employees will also be actively involved in the March of Dimes fundraising, said Matt Klugman of Vacation Myrtle Beach.

“The managers and employees always get creative to find ways to raise money,” Klugman said. “They will often do fun contests and challenges to involve everyone in a fun and meaningful way.”

At the end of the fundraiser, on April 23, Vacation Myrtle Beach resort employees and their families will walk in the March for Babies event at Field in Myrtle Beach. This three-mile walk is organized by the Pee Dee Division of the March of Dimes and will begin at 9:00 a.m. with registration starting at 8:30 a.m.

Everyone is invited to donate through the Ocean Creek Resort Team Page on the March of Dimes website ( Individuals can also join the team to help fundraise and optionally walk with us in the event.

“We hope everyone will join us in raising money for the March of Dimes. We truly can make a difference,” said Klugman.
