Good Shepherd Center Hosts Fourth Flavor Of North Carolina

By Jessica Maurer, posted Nov 8, 2017
Good Shepherd Center will host its fourth annual Flavor of North Carolina event Saturday at The Blockade Runner on Wrightsville Beach.

Saturday is Veteran’s Day, and Good Shepherd works with homeless veterans at its Sgt. Eugene Ashley Center and at SECU Lakeside Reserve.  Nov. 11 also marks the beginning of National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week.
Guests will enjoy a pig pickin’ with all the fixin’s, craft beer and wine and a signature hot cider cocktail.
Guests will have the opportunity to mingle around a fire pit and enjoy activities such as corn hole, a trivia contest and dancing. There will be a silent auction featuring the work of local artists, staycations, excursions and area attractions.
Tickets are $60 per person in advance and $75 at the door. All proceeds support Good Shepherd’s work to feed the hungry, shelter the homeless and foster transitions to housing.
Good Shepherd is the largest provider of homeless services in New Hanover, Brunswick and Pender counties and works with men, women and families with children to move them from shelter to housing stability.
The center serves as a soup kitchen, providing more than 88,000 meals to hungry individuals and families each year, as well as a homeless shelter, sheltering more than 900 homeless men, women and children each year.
For ticket information, contact Stacy Geist at 763-4424, ext. 113, or email her at [email protected].
