Guests enjoyed a day in the country that included lunch and dinner, fishing, archery, skeet shooting and dog field trials. The event at Bobby Harrelson’s 875-acre private retreat for quail hunting raised $53,000  for its nonprofit partners which serve the community. The Harrelson Center is located in the former New Hanover County Law Enforcement Center and jail at 20 North Fourth Street, Wilmington. A portion of the 66,868-square-foot building has been renovated for office space and meeting rooms for nonprofit organizations, which pay below market rates. Tenants include: Philippians 3 Ministries, Recovery Resource Center, Communities in Schools,  Wilmington Area Rebuilding Ministry (WARM), Cape Fear Habitat for Humanity and A Safe Place serving local sex trafficking victims.
