Arbor Landing at Ocean Isle Continues a Ridge Care Tradition of Philanthropy Donating $6685 to Brunswick Senior Resources, Inc.
Arbor Landing at Ocean Isle is proud to be able to continue a long standing Ridge Care tradition of giving back to the community we serve. On May 17th Arbor Landing held its 2nd Annual Boston Butt & BBQ Plate sale. This year all proceeds raised went to Brunswick Senior Resources, Inc. Over 400 BBQ plates and 100 Boston Butts were sold throughout the day. Residents and guests picnicked on the Arbor Landing front lawn and enjoyed musical entertainment by county commissioner Marty Cooke. The event was a tremendous success and the community was proud to be able to raise $6685 for Brunswick Senior Resources, Inc.
BSRI is a voluntary nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote the well-being and enhance the quality of life for all senior adults of Brunswick County. It advocates for programs and delivers services encouraging and sustaining independence and continued participation in the community. In addition to operating several senior centers and nutrition sites throughout the county the organization delivers over 100,000 meals annually to home bound seniors through the meals on wheels program. They also offer transportation services, prescription assistance, family caregivers, case management, and assistance with ramps and rails.
This worthwhile event could not have been possible without several local businesses and individuals who lent their time and resources. Arbor Landing would like to thank James Russ and family, the congregation of Jennies Branch Baptist Church, Jerome’s Seafood & Steak, Coastline Catering, Lumber River Propane, Guy C. Lee Building Materials, Wooten Electric, and employees and volunteers from Brunswick Senior Resources, Inc.
Since opening in September of 2010, Arbor Landing is honored to have been able to donate over $20,000 to support local non-profit agencies. The community’s initial Relay for Life Gala raised over $3000 for the American Cancer Society. In 2012, the 1st Annual Boston Butt & BBQ Plate sale raised $10,557 for Lower Cape Fear Hospice and LifeCareCenter and the construction of the new SECU Hospice House of Brunswick. Now this year Arbor Landing was honored to again raise a substantial amount of money for BSRI. The residents and staff hope to be able to continue this tradition for many years to come and look forward to supporting many worthwhile causes.
