At Hope For The Warriors, your safety is our top priority, especially with the ongoing impact of COVID-19. We encourage event participants to follow the CDC’s safety guidelines, as well as state and local guidelines concerning COVID. Let’s stay safe and protect others as we gather to support HOPE!
That’s why Hope For The Warriors means so much to me and my husband. It not only made it possible for me to study art, it gave me a safe place to share my experience with others going through something similar. It even helped me understand what my husband and I need to care for ourselves and each other.

On Thursday evening May 30, 2019, 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. One serving of beer or wine is included, as is unlimited water or soda. Additional wine/beer can be purchased for $2 per serving.
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. We will also have raffle tickets for sale, for a chance at some unique items.
Additionally, there will be a Live Auction featuring the antics of “Auctioneers on Deck” in the Aquarium Auditorium. There will be another 25 or so large ticket items in the Live Auction.
Last year these items included a kayak, beach cruiser, football tickets, hotels and vacation, golf outings, hang gliding, professional services, a beautiful hand-made quilt, fabulous stained glass, wooden art pieces and more. This year will feature the same caliber of items. Please plan to take your items home on the night of the auction as we will be charging a $20 holding fee per item to transport & hold the items at Town Hall.
We look forward to a fun evening, with entertainment, great auction items, good food and friends. We hope you participate generously for the benefit of our combat wounded.
