Diners at a Wrightsville Beach restaurant this Saturday will be helping grant the wish of a sick Wilmington child, as King Neptune Restaurant & Bar will donate a portion of proceeds from its March 11 sales to the local Make-a-Wish foundation. The benefit runs from 7:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. at the restaurant’s 11 N. Lumina Ave. location.
And while good food and a good cause may be enough reason to come to King Neptune’s on Saturday, the restaurant is providing even more incentive through a fundraising raffle, with the grand prize being a paddleboard.
The restaurant will feature three different breakfast and drink specials, with all proceeds from those sales going to Make-A-Wish. The restaurant will also donate a percentage of proceeds from all sales made during the benefit, as well as encourage patrons to add a donation to Make-A-Wish on top of their bill.
The goal is to reach $7,500, the minimum required to grant a “wish” to one of the kids, said the restaurant’s daytime manager Sara Fried, adding that the restaurant will cover any shortfall in meeting the goal. The restaurant plans to host additional fundraisers in the coming months, Fried said.
