Bladen-We-Care-AdBladen We Care is celebrating 25 years of caring and proudly presents their annual fundraiser, “Let’s Toast Bladen County for Caring.” Smithfield and Murphy-Brown are sponsoring the celebration on Friday, April 17th, at The Venue in White Lake. “‘Let’s Toast Bladen County for Caring’ is this year’s slogan for the gala. The evening will be filled with fun, food and good music featuring Blackwater Rhythm & Blues Band. All tickets holders will be eligible for the reverse raffle. There also will be a live auction with a limited number of items at the party.

Tickets are available at Leinwands, Fishers, Campbell Oil, or from any Bladen We Care board member, for $100 per couple. All proceeds go to those with medical needs in Bladen County.

The gala is one of two fundraisers held annually to support Bladen We Care. The other fundraiser is a golf tournament, which is scheduled Thursday, April 24, at Vineyard Golf at White Lake. For more information about either of the events, call 910-874-4001.
