The first of two annual fund-raisers for Bladen We Care is scheduled for Thursday at The Vineyard Golf Course, White Lake. Best I can tell, a full, or near full field, morning and afternoon. Weather forecast is for sunny skies with temps in the mid 80s.
And the Annual Gala is scheduled for Friday, May 5th at Lu Mil Vineyard. Tickets still available, $100 per couple. Entertainment by Black Water Rhythm & Blues Band. Proceeds from both events benefit Bladen County residents ‘falling thru the cracks of our healthcare system.’
There are numerous other worthy events over the next few weeks in Bladen County. Check the ‘Events’ section of BladenOnline for details.
