Wilmington area readers, on behalf of our alum, and also for a good cause, we hope that in addition to rocking the vote this year, you might also find time to Rock for a Cure. This evening will be the 8th annual breast cancer benefit hosted by the UNCW Com Department.
Since 2007 the event has raised over $27,000 for New Hanover Regional Medical Center Foundation’s Pink Ribbon Project. These funds have helped raise awareness of breast cancer, assisted women in our area with mammography screening, and have supplied care bags for women who are undergoing cancer treatments.
Starting at 6 pm tonight, the Rock the Cure event will he hosted at the Reel Cafe in downtown Wilmington. There will be live music by the faculty rock band The Schoolboys, a silent auction, and a raffle. From past experience, we know that raffle always dolls out some great prizes. Items include gift baskets and card from local business, and even an iPad Mini. And on the silent auction this year? An autographed basketball by the UNCW Men’s Basketball Coaches, 3 autographed Scotty McCreery CDs, and autographed Josh Turner merchandise.
Don’t miss this opportunity to support a great cause, meet some great people, and have a good time!!!
