Staff holding large check

The CarolinaEast Foundation is proud to announce the results of the 2022 “Dining Out Against Cancer” campaign. On each Tuesday during the month of May, the CarolinaEast Foundation hosted “Dining Out Against Cancer” at various local restaurants in New Bern. This year’s campaign brought in a remarkable total of $31,025.17.

During this community-wide fundraising event, a portion of the sales at the twenty-nine participating restaurants were donated to the CarolinaEast Foundation and 100% of those dollars are dedicated directly to serving the SECU Comprehensive Cancer Center patients and special programs designed to enhance cancer patients’ quality of life.

“We are very grateful for this year’s participating restaurants. Thanks to their incredible generosity, we were able to raise a record-breaking amount of money to support our cancer patients and programs,” said Jared Brinkley, CarolinaEast Foundation Executive Director. “Next time you are deciding where to eat locally, I hope that you’ll consider one of these restaurants that greatly contribute to our community.”
