Share the Table's Topsail Turtle Blast
Share the Table is a faith based community Food Ministry supported by nine churches within Pender and Onslow, NC counties. Dawn and her team at Share the Table work incredibly hard all year to feed the people in our community who have to make the heartbreaking decision between food and other basic family needs. This organization helps families through their free community meal, food pantry and school backpack programs. Each week they are feeding over 950 Pender and Onslow county residents.
Each year Share The Table puts on their Topsail Turtle Blast to raise funds for their financial needs throughout the year. The proceeds go to stock the food pantry, aid in the soup kitchen and fill the school food back pack program. Participants adopt turtles for $5.00 a piece and on race day (weather permitting) the Rubber Turtles will race down water slides in three heats with the top prize of $500! There will be plenty for the family to do as well that day with food vendors, music and other kid activities on site at the Topsail Moose Lodge beginning at 5:30.
Now, if you wanted to contribute to Dawn and her incredible team by adopting a turtle and cannot attend the Topsail Turtle Blast on race day, you do not have to be present to win. If you want to make donations to Share The Table, follow the link below to see the schedule for those times.
