Marina hosts free movie night Friday

Lake Wylie Marina hosts movie night Friday, May 16, at sunset to raise money and awareness for Saving Eliza’s story.

“Finding Nemo” will show at dusk for this boat-in movie event.

The movie is free, but donations will be accepted to help Eliza O’Neill, 4, of Columbia, who was diagnosed with Sanfilippo Syndrome, a rare genetic disease that attacks the brain. Monday raised will send her for clinical trial at Ohio State University and Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Matt Sellhorst, Hall Marine employee, is cousin to the O’Neill family.

Future movie dates will be the third Friday of the month – June 20, July 18 and Aug. 15.

Lake info available on app

Duke Energy has made its lake information smartphone friendly.

The site can be accessed on a smartphone at m.duke-energy.com. The default menu shows an option for Lakes and Recreation.

Duke Energy’s lake information websites – which include recreational water release schedules, lake levels and alerts – attract thousands of hits each month. The number rises steadily when heavy rainfall causes high water conditions at the lakes managed by the company.

In addition to accessing the new mobile-enabled website, boaters can check real-time lake levels and updates at duke-energy.com/lakes/levels.asp, and on Duke Energy’s lake information phone line at 800-829-5253.
