To celebrate our local waters and the people that love them, the North Carolina Coastal Federation is hosting its fifth annual Fish Fry and Shrimp Boil fundraiser at its Wanchese office. Join the federation from 4:30 to 7 p.m. on Sept. 30 to enjoy the bounty of our estuaries. As always, the annual menu features locally harvested fish and shrimp, plus sides and desserts. In addition, enjoy live music, a raffle and fun activities for the whole family! This event is scheduled to take place outdoors.
Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Children 12 and under are free (suggested donation $10). Each ticket includes one plate of food and a nonalcoholic drink; other beverages will be available for purchase. Be sure to purchase your tickets in advance, as the event usually sells out! Tickets are nonrefundable and can be purchased online, or in person (after Aug. 15, 2016) at Café Lachine in Nags Head and Front Porch Café in Manteo.
Thanks to a generous donation from City Beverage Company and Sweetwater Brewing Company, we will be raffling off a stand-up paddleboard at the event. Tickets for the raffle can be purchased online at www.nccoast.org/paddleboard or during the registration process. Bring your friends and enjoy a great meal while supporting a healthy coast and a worthwhile organization!
