Heartfelt appreciation to the folks who came out to support our community at this weekend's Wilmington Strong Hurricane Relief Concert!
The donations are still being counted, but as of now the totals are roughly $500k in corporate sponsorships, $15k in cash donations at the door, and $1m toward statewide United Way Florence relief programs.
These funds will benefit our community and fellow North Carolinians, and we thank you sincerely for your generosity. Together, we're Wilmington STRONG!
