The North Carolina Coastal Federation’s annual Pelican Awards have been expanded to a full evening of celebration, food and a silent auction fundraiser to benefit the federation.
The fun begins at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, July 31, 2015 at the North Carolina History Center in New Bern. Enjoy mouth-watering local food, including a traditional shrimp boil, live music, beer and wine in a relaxed, casual setting. Everyone is invited to join in this special celebration of the coast.
The Pelican Awards laud the achievements of individuals, businesses, non-profit groups, local and state governments and educators who have demonstrated exemplary commitment and undertaken meaningful actions to protect and restore our coast.
The silent auction will feature a variety of coastal themed items from art to one-of-a-kind excursions. A preview of select silent auction items will be available for early online bidding on July 1 at 32auctions.com/nccf. This is your opportunity to preview some of the exciting items up for auction and get a head start on the bidding!
Tickets are $50.00 for members, $60.00 for non-members and include the reception, shrimp boil, silent auction, and awards ceremony.
