All-you-can-eat benefit to raise money for Hurricane Harvey relief

Oak Park Retirement and its residents will host a hurricane relief fundraiser on Saturday.

In an effort to aid victims of Hurricane Harvey in Texas, a full all-you-can-eat breakfast that includes scrambled eggs, fresh fruit, bacon, sausage, orange juice and coffee will be prepared by Oak Park chefs with help from Oak Park residents and Catawba College students.

The cost of the meal is a suggested donation of $10 and at least one nonperishable food item.

Residents of Oak Park grew up during a time when aiding those in need was commonplace and are excited about helping on Saturday.

Hawthorne, Oak Park’s parent company, has authorized 60 of its retirement communities to have similar fundraisers Saturday. All proceeds will go for Hurricane Harvey relief and all the canned goods collected will go to Rowan Helping Ministries.

Oak Park will host the breakfast at 548 White Oaks Drive from 7:30 to 10 a.m.

City of Salisbury firefighters and police officers will be guests of Oak Park and many should be on hand about 9 a.m. Saturday.

There will be a drawing for two Panthers tickets, and musicians Matthew Weaver and Clay Lunsford will perform from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.

For more information and to RSVP if possible, but not required, call 704-636-4600.
