Oak Island is spreading ‘local love’ for shark attack victims

OAK ISLAND, NC (WWAY) — Today residents of Oak Island, and surrounding towns, went out around the area handing out fliers to help raise awareness for a campaign to help raise money for the victim’s of last weekend’s shark attacks in the area.

Dawn Batykefer and Deborah Feldman have been working throughout the community to get local business and restaurants to display fliers and serve as drop off locations for funds for the two teenagers. Even Oak Island Mayor Betty Wallace, was out today helping to spread the word and spread the love.

All three women agree that there is so much love in the area to give, and the money is the least they can do to help Hunter and Kiersten on their roads to recovery. Wallace adds that it doesn’t matter if you’re a resident or a visitor, when you’re in Oak Island you’re family, and the island helps their family when they need it.

There is a GoFundMe website for the teens which can be found here.

Donations can also be dropped off in person at the Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage at 4911 Long Beach Road or any area Wells Fargo Bank. Checks can be made out to “Help Kiersten and Hunter.”

Batykefer said they will continue collecting through at least the 4th of July.
