The weather, and especially the tide, worked in our favor this year. A big thank
you goes to Robert Holman and his team for spearheading this event.
The second event, the Warrior Reception and Auction, was held on Thursday,
May 31, at the NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores. Attendees were welcomed with
tables laden with an assortment of foods donated by over 20 local restaurants.
Attendees snacked as they perused and bid on over 100 items in the silent auction.
Many members of the Pine Knoll Shores Garden Club and Pine Knoll Shores
Womens Club prepared baked goods for the dessert table. Thanks go to Glen
Johnson and our troop of kitchen workers who kept the food tables refreshed, as
well as Class Act Catering.
Auctioneers on Deck took over the live auction festivities. Howard Henderson
and Mary Ellen Eurich did a great job of keeping the auction lively and
fun. Twenty-seven items were presented for bidding. Items such as a kayak,
paddleboard, wine basket, household items, golf packages, a recliner, a quilt by
Karen Zaenker and Cindy Moeller and much more were offered. Thanks to Celeste
Lindley for her hard work in organizing this fun evening. Our auction team was
terrific; thanks to all who helped secure auction items. We also appreciate the staff
at the aquarium for all their help.
