WILMINGTON, NC(WECT) - We run cooking segments for Carolina in the Morning every Thursday. It's a great way for local restaurants to get some TV exposure, viewers get a new recipe and in several cases we also get to help promote a great event.
For the past three years I have had the pleasure of working with Jake Hunt, the Executive Director and Founder of the Wilmington Junior Golf Academy. Jake is such a wonderful man and works very hard to make sure children in our area get a chance to learn to play golf. What the children don't know, because they are having so much fun, is they are also learning important core values.
This year Jake is taking the golf lesssons to four Wilmington elementary schools and several afterschool programs. All of this is done with no expense to the children or their parents. To make this all happen Jake also does a lot to raise money and Carrabba's Italian Grill is helping with that.
A fundraiser luncheon is being held on Friday, March 2 at Carrabba's. The tickets are $25 and include bread, caesar salad, sirloin, crab-stuffed shrimp, tiramisu and a non-alcoholic drink. For tickets call Jake at 910-622-5253 or go to Wilmington Junior Golf Academy.
