The event doesn’t end at Wrightsville Beach Brewery, as the Palm Room in Wrightsville Beach will host the official after party, starting at 9 p.m., with Medjool Datez, Massive Grass, Tanbridge and Ethan Driskill scheduled to play.

The following day on Sunday, Sept. 30 at noon, the music continues with another concert fundraiser, this one at Waterman’s Brewing at 1610 Pavilion Place, Wilmington. Jared Michael Cline and Folkstone String Band will provide the music, with funds raised going to Samaritan’s Purse, a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization that provides “spiritual and physical aid.”

At Saturday’s Wilmington Strong Concert, every $10 donation receives a raffle ticket. Prizes include:

– FUN Package -$250 Cash – from Chris Hutchens at Guaranteed Rate and Trolley Pub Wilmington group pedal bike tour.
– YETI Super Tailgate Package from Redix Store.
– Surf Package from Sweetwater Surf Shop, Holly Jacobs Art
– Feel Good Package , Tidal Creek Co-op Gift Card, Susan Chesson, Hair & Makeup Artist, Rachael Kinsey Designs, T. Shaw Designs
– Landscape Project or routine lawn maintenance package from Bowman’s Best Lawn Care, Inc.

Chris Hutchens at Guaranteed Rate is the title sponsor of the event. Parking at Wrightsville Beach Brewery will be limited.

The mission of Good Shepherd Center is to feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, and foster transition to housing. With Hurricane Florence’s destruction of the Salvation Army’s shelter on the north side, Good Shepherd is not only the largest provider of homeless services, but the only homeless shelter in downtown Wilmington. Established in 1983 as a modest Soup Kitchen, Good Shepherd has grown to become the largest provider of homeless services in the region.

During Saturday’s after party at the Palm Room, located at 11 E Salisbury St., a Huffy 26″ beach cruiser will be the raffle prize.

Sunday’s concert at Waterman’s Brewing will offer $10 barbeque plates and offer a bounce house for the kids. On Q Financial is a title sponsor of the event.

Carwash Fundraiser Saturday in Wilmington

The Pour House Bar, Goat and Compass Bar along with Party Wilmington will be putting on a car wash, bake sale, lemonade stand fundraiser on Saturday, Sept. 29 from 2-6pm at The Goat and Compass Bar.
