6 Fun-d Raisers to be held Downtown this Weekend

Posted Jul 12th, 2019 in Weekend Wish List


 

Downtown Wilmington is a thriving community of locals and visitors who support the shops, restaurants, attractions, entertainment venues, art galleries and more. Downtown merchants are thankful for this support and many give back to the community by hosting fun-d raisers for nonprofit organizations or other charitable causes.
 

Just this weekend, six different fun-d raisers are being held at various Downtown locales so take your pick and join the fun while supporting a good cause.
