The 8th Annual Walk Against Addiction will be held on September 9th at First Flight High School. We would love to see you there! We will present the organization with a donation from the proceeds of our cookbook, Cooking with Blue. Since June, we have sold over 500 books and just printed 500 more. 1,000 is our goal and we hope to reach it by the end of the year. With your help, we will get there!
If you haven’t purchased your cookbook yet, they are available at both restaurants (Blue Water and Blue Moon), all 3 Southern Bank locations, the Outer Banks Hospital, and online…. www.BlueWaterGrillOBX.com/store. They are $15 and filled with delicious recipes from our restaurants, chefs, employees, and customers.
The Walk proceeds will assist those in need of help from substance abuse. Here is the schedule of events:
