Federation to Host Hurricane Relief Event

WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH — Enjoy a traditional low country boil with fresh local shrimp while supporting area Hurricane Florence relief efforts Oct. 28 during the North Carolina Coastal Federation fundraiser at the Hanover Seaside Club.

Waterman’s Brewing Co. and SeaGlass wines are providing refreshments plus there will be a coastal-themed silent auction and live music from Sound Side.

Tickets are $50 for federation members and $60 for nonmembers. Advanced tickets are available online and at the door as supplies last. Fifty percent of proceeds will benefit regional hurricane relief efforts in partnership with WARM NC, or Wilmington Area Rebuilding Ministry, as they complete urgent home repairs for low-income homeowners affected by Hurricane Florence in Brunswick, New Hanover and Pender counties.

There’s also an opportunity to win a Nirve Beach Cruiser bike donated by Two Wheeler Dealer  or an Allison Classic Surfboard shaped by Will Allison, who has been creating surfboards for more than 40 years. He produces about 300 custom boards annually. Add a raffle ticket after selecting event tickets by clicking “Continue Browsing” and then “Raffle Tickets” in the menu.

The annual fundraiser supports the federation’s local work restoring coastal habitats and water quality, strengthening natural defenses against storms.
