On Thursday evening June 1, 2017, at 6:00 PM, the annual Warrior Reception with its two auctions (Live and Silent) will be held at the NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores.This event, which especially honors our combat wounded, is also intended to recognize all of our veterans.


This is a delightfully entertaining evening for everyone.  For an admission fee of  $10, you gain admittance to the aquarium and all its exhibits and are invited to enjoy some of the finest food our local restaurants provide.  Two beverages of your choice (wine, beer & soda) are included.

Please stroll through the galleries and take a few minutes to place a bid on one of the silent auction items.The Silent Auction will feature 100 items by local artists and craftsmen as well as items donated by local merchants.

In addition to the Silent Auction, there will be a Live Auction featuring the antics of “Auctioneers on Deck” in the Aquarium Auditorium. There will be another 40 or so items in the Live Auction.

Last year these items included Carolina Panthers’ football tickets, hotels and vacation, golf outings, professional services, hand-made quilt, fabulous stained glass, marble art pieces and more.

This year will feature  the same caliber of items.  Make no mistake about our intentions. We’ve made the evening fun, entertaining and filling.  We hope you participate generously for the benefit of our combat wounded.
