Wish Upon A Chef 2022

         Several EIPHC members were invited to attend the 2022 Wish Upon A Chef event in Wilmington, NC on March 17, 2022. This is the second time that members from the club  have been invited to attend.  The event is a fundraiser for Make a Wish Eastern NC. The evening was filled with food and fun. Attendees sampled appetizers, main dishes and desserts prepared by area chefs as they competed for Best Dish in each category. There were numerous silent auction items and a live auction as well. Several previous “wish” recipients shared their stories and how the Make A Wish organization had impacted their lives. The event raised $275,000 to help grant wishes to the 500 plus children who are currently waiting for “wishes” in our area. The average wish costs approximately $7500. The EIPHC is a supporter of Make A Wish Eastern NC through our Island Santa Bar Crawl which is held each year on the first Saturday in December. The 2021 crawl raised $30,350 for this great cause.


ISBC 2021 Grand Totals Top $30,000

The Island Santa Bar Crawl 2021 was held the first weekend in December. This event is held annually and benefits Make a Wish of Eastern NC. This year’s event included a Christmas Pajama Party at the EIPHC monthly Phlocking on Friday, the Island Santa Bar Crawl on Saturday, and a Bloody Mary Contest and Auction on Sunday. There were also several private parties held by local individuals to fundraise for this great cause during Crawl Week. This year’s event raised $30,350.00 for Make a Wish. This donation will help grant wishes for critically ill children in our area of the state. The Emerald Isle Parrot Head Club is extremely proud to be a part of this annual fundraising effort
Big Birds, Moh Traini and Jimi Crampton along with EIPHC President Jan Hicks would like to thank everyone who made this event such a BIG success. The ISBC 2021 stops included: Surf’s Up, Trading Post, Beach Bums, Shark’s Den, Island Time Tavern, The Growler and Gaffer’s. The E-Club, our home “nest” was a huge support as always. This year, we added an additional event on Sunday at 34 North in Cedar Point, and we hope this will become an ongoing part of the Crawl Weekend. There were approximately 350 participants at this year’s event on Saturday and a PHun time was had by all!! THANK YOU to everyone who participated, donated and otherwise supported Island Santa Bar Crawl 2021. We’ll see you the first weekend of December 2022 when we do it all over again!!
