You have probably already heard that a young (29) local woman and nurse with 2 young children has ovarian cancer and the community is rallying around this family. The Emerald Club is hosting the first fundraiser on Saturday January 17th starting with a Community Yard Sale from 8 am to Noon (at the E-Club), Barbeque Plates for $8 (food donated by the E-Club and Piggly Wiggly) from 11 AM to 2PM, 50/50 raffle, plus 4 bands starting at 5 PM (cover is $10) All cover, tips and proceeds will be donated to Hope 4 Holly. (see attached flyer). How can the Emerald Isle Parrot Head Nation help? We need items to be donated for the yard sale, shop at the yard sale, work at the yard sale, sell and purchase raffle tickets, help with serving BBQ, come and eat and listen to some great bands who are donating their time for this cause. Donated items for the yard sale can be brought to 117 Arthur Dr. Emerald Isle (on the ocean side, off Craig St.) Contact Travis at 252-503-1571 for info or donation pick up. You know we have 387 members in our Club right now and we can have a major impact on this fundraiser so let’s get out the Parrot Power. Check the flyer for more details and we will keep you posted on Facebook as well.
New Info for Yard Sale Item Drop Off!
The Emerald Club now has a storage trailer so you can drop off any items there. If someone is in the Club, you can let them know and if not (if they are not open) you can leave the items outside the storage container if it is locked and they will check periodically to load items. Date of event is Saturday, January 17th. Several of you have asked about clothing donations and yes they will have a table for good used clothing.
