5th Annual Taste of Wrightsville Beach

Dear Wrightsville Beach Employees,

Please join us for the 5th Annual Taste of Wrightsville Beach to be held on Saturday, October 8, 2016 from 5:00-8:00PM on the waterfront at MarineMax. In appreciation for your service to our community, the Wrightsville Beach Foundation is offering a significant discount of $25 per person admission (regularly $75).

The festival will celebrate the island’s diverse and delicious fare on and around the beach with over 40 local cuisine, beer and wine tasting booths. Celebrity judges will rate the dishes with a “Best in Show”, “Best Savory” and “Best Sweet” dishes and participants will select the “People’s Choice” award. NEW this year, patrons will vote on the “Best Beer” and “Best Wine”.

Any net proceeds will be used for the following purposes:

• 40% towards the New Hanover County Weekend Meals on Wheels program. The mission of this non-profit organization is to ensure provision of nutritious meals and social contact to senior and disabled persons on weekends and other days not covered by the weekday Home Delivered Meals program in New Hanover County.

• 60% will go towards various island organizations and projects including: Wrightsville Beach Sea Turtle Project; Hope from Helen Foundation; The Harbor Way Garden (maintained by the Harbor Island Garden Club); The North Carolina Holiday Flotilla; Tennis Court Lighting; Bike Racks; and Future island projects in partnership with the town of Wrightsville Beach’s Parks and Recreation Committee.
