Visitors to the July 13th event won giveaways donated by over 45 local businesses and enjoyed a live remote broadcast by The Moose radio and music by singer/songwriter Andy Minnie.

Some of the prizes donated for the raffle included rounds of golf at Inlet Golf Club, and overnight stays at area hotels such as Nelson’s, Sunset Beach and Harvey’s Cottages and Marina Motel.

Fundraising events included a car wash, raffle and foods sales, all benefiting Inlet and Eagle Bay Fire Departments, Cousins that Care and Equine Rescue League of Cooperstown.

Lamphear said she was pleased with the turnout, adding that people were shocked at the prizes that were being given out.

In addition to what the charities raised themselves during the event, Lamphear said that over $1,000 was raised through food sales and raffles that will be divided among the three charities.
