Taisean

Give Taisean some encouragement! Use the Leave a Reply field at the bottom of this page.

This is your life

Three weeks ago, he helped clear the land. It was his first time on a job site, but he came ready to learn.

“He’s like a sponge,” the foreman tells us. “He absorbs everything. And he wants to learn how to do things the right way. If he was 18, I’d offer him a job right now. That’s how good he is.”

Taisean still has a couple of years before he’s 18, so there’s time to decide if construction is in his future. Right now his focus is on completing high school, earning money at a part-time job, and volunteering with Habitat for Humanity.

“I’ve learned a lot about myself this year,” he says. “I’ve learned I can do this [construction] and I’ve learned I can be part of a team. When people meet me, I hope they can see that I’m a hard worker.”


First Chance for White Pants

It’s a dance party in Greenville to benefit Methodist Home for Children. Put on your white pants (or favorite summertime party wear), grab your friends and step out for an evening of fun with Liquid Pleasure, the South’s premier show and dance band.

Heavy hors d’oeuvres, wine, and beer are included … plus, great auctions to get your summer started.

CANCELED: Wilmington’s Epicurean Evening

One of the true highlights of our year is Wilmington’s Epicurean Evening. For one night, the community comes together to celebrate the finest foods and beverages available in Wilmington – and it is spectacular. Chefs from signature restaurants are there, showing off their skills and dazzling the crowd. Vintners and brew masters come with an array of offerings. And there, in the midst of the best of the best, we tell our story.

Epicurean Evening is also a major fundraiser for us. The first one was held in 2006, and last year cumulative donations hit the million dollar mark. We were excited to return to Wilmington and add this year’s total to that amount. But hurricanes are unstoppable and their damage long-lasting.

We are sad to announce that our 2018 Epicurean Evening will be canceled this year.

We are grateful for the friendship and support we have received from the Wilmington community and look forward to hosting Epicurean Evening again on Thursday August 29, 2019.
