Good Shepherd Center will host the 6th Annual Flavor of North Carolina at Carolina Yacht Club on Saturday, November 9, 2019 from 5 – 9 pm. This signature fall fundraiser is a celebration of our shared North Carolina home with a focus on food, drink, and experiences unique to our great state.
As local as it gets, Flavor of North Carolina raises critical funds for Good Shepherd’s mission to feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, and foster transition to housing in the Cape Fear Region. Guests will enjoy local food and beverages, music, and a huge silent auction with packages and experiences that feature all the best the Carolinas have to offer.
The Yacht Club venue offers stunning views of the Intracoastal and the ocean, and all the natural beauty that abounds on Wrightsville Beach.
Advance tickets are $75 and are all inclusive for the evening’s activities. Tickets at the door will be $100, if any are still available.

The mission of Good Shepherd is to feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, and foster transition to housing.
Established in 1983 as a modest Soup Kitchen, Good Shepherd has grown to become the largest provider of homeless services in the region. Current programs include the Soup Kitchen; Second Helpings food salvage and distribution program; Sgt. Eugene Ashley Transitional Living Center for homeless Veterans; a Day Shelter providing the homeless with access to showers, clothing, and on-site mental health and health services; and a Night Shelter with 118 beds for homeless men, women, and families with children. Operating with just 19 full-time staff, Good Shepherd is heavily volunteer-driven, relying on the donated time and talent of more than 500 individuals from diverse backgrounds. Good Shepherd recently opened SECU Lakeside Reserve, an affordable housing unit with 16 apartments for chronically homeless adults with disabilities, including seniors and Veterans. An additional 24 units will open this Summer.
