This past Saturday marked the 3rd Annual Pleasure Island Shopping Spree. Local stores, Jeanne’s Jewels and Fashion, Majik Beanz Coffee Shop, Artful Living Group, Island Wellness, Checkered Church, Island Chic, Primrose Cottage, Nautilus Art and Frame, Island Roast Coffee, Brew Thru, Footprints and Big Apple Bakery all participated in the “Shop and Win” event that encouraged people to shop within their community for the Holiday Season. After the Spree on Saturday those who spent a minimum of $10 at participating shops received one raffle ticket per $10 at Casa Matta. Attendees were given a choice of one free appetizer and a chance to win one of several fabulous prize baskets.
Event organizer Jeanne Mcbane also held a 50/50 raffle for the Heitman Family of Carolina Beach. Siblings Erika and Christian have both faced major medical problems requiring constant care from their single mother Lee Anne. The funds used will help the family with cost of living. The winner of the 50/50 graciously donated his portion of the winnings to the family leaving many in tears and proud of the place they call home.
Special thanks to everyone who came out and participated and chose to shop local also to Jeanne Mcbane for another successful event!
