'Harvest the Promise' Event Raises Funds for Homeless
Family Promise helps to feed, house and provide a hand up to the homeless in Moore County every day. Thursday, Oct. 15, they're offering to feed you at the Fair Barn -- so you'll join in the cause.
The annual Harvest the Promise event at the Pinehurst Fair Barn begins at 6:30 p.m. and features over 10 area restaurants, live music and both a silent and live auction.
Regional favorites such as the Darling House Pub, Elliott's on Linden, Chef Warren's, The Bell Tree and the Italian Table will offer a lively dine-around, as guests are entertained by performances from members of the Golf Capital Chorus and the Smith Family Bluegrass Band. Beer, wine and beverages are also included in the ticket price.
Silent auction items ranging from reserve vintage wine to jewelry, artwork to golf and gift baskets from area shops and boutiques will also be offered up for bids.
A fun, flashing pumpkin "Heads or Tails" contest gives a lucky attendant ice cream for a year at Southern Pines' Ice Cream Parlor.
The night concludes with the popular live auction, where a Pinehurst "staycation" in the Carolina Hotel Presidential Suite, a Buick Century and "Sponsor a Child" will be up for grabs to the evening's lucky bidders.
Tickets for the Thursday event are now on sale at $50 per person or $80 per couple.
All major proceeds benefit our local community homeless directly through the Wheels to Work, training, assistance and congregational support programs offered through Family Promise.
Reservations can be made in advance by calling Family Promise at (910) 944-7149; tickets may also be purchased at the door. Corporate and family sponsorships start at $100 and include tickets to the event.
Sponsors include Aberdeen Exterminating, BB&T, First Pioneer Insurance, Healy Wholesale, This End Up, Sandhills Pediatrics and Southern Pines Chevrolet.
Since its founding in 1999 as the Sandhills Interfaith Hospitality Network, Family Promise of Moore County has helped hundreds of individuals by providing temporary shelter, meals, and hospitality to homeless families in our own backyard. Most are children under the age of 18.
Transportation, compassion, supportive services and advocacy are all offered, with the assistance of the local congregational community, to assist them in achieving their potential of independent living.
More than 10 area churches assist in this every week as an outreach of their local missions programs.
