The Friends of Jupiter Beach received 100% of the proceeds from the festival. Friends of Jupiter Beach was founded in 1994 and is a non-profit volunteer-driven community service organization that helps to keep the beaches of Jupiter clean and dog friendly by reducing the amount of garbage and debris. In 2006, the organization began counting the weight collected in garbage and has collected more than 69,000 pounds of garage from our beaches. Every month, they host a beach cleanup and the schedule can be found here.
