Sugar Bear’s birthday bash includes artist Wolfe, tribute to cancer survivors

ROCKWELL — Andy Wolfe, the North Carolina artist behind Gotta Kill It to Grill It and Gotta Kill It to Heal It merchandise, will be at Sugar Bear’s one-year anniversary party Saturday.

The dairy bar is at 8484 U.S. 52, next to the NAPA Auto Parts store in Rockwell.

Teia and Tab Allman own Sugar Bear’s, which sells ice cream, soups and sandwiches.

Saturday’s anniversary bash will last from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wolfe will meet folks and sign items such as shirts, cups and hats from noon to 2 p.m.

At 2 p.m., Sugar Bear’s will have a tribute to cancer survivors.

Sugar Bear’s sells Gotta Kill It to Grill It and Gotta Kill It to Heal it merchandise, and 20 percent of  theproceeds from Gotta Kill It to Heal It goods go to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, a foundation named for the late N.C. State University women’s basketball coach who died of breast cancer.

Wolfe has said the primary inspiration and designs for Gotta Kill It to Heal It were to bring awareness, support and contributions toward finding a cure for breast cancer.

Wolfe, a North Carolina native, has spent much of his lifetime fishing and hunting.

“We at Gotta Kill It to Grill It are dedicated to the idea and practice that the respect of sea life, fowl and beast always be considered and that hunting and fishing for sport is for human consumption, not for waste or the unnecessary taking of animal life,” the company website says.

Saturday, Sugar Bear’s also will offer $1 hot dogs, 50-cent drinks, $1 off milkshakes, $1 off two-scoop waffle cones, a bounce house for kids and raffles for door prizes.

Sugar Bear’s normal hours are 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday and 2-8 p.m. Sunday.
