Ken & Lee Conrad, owners of Libby Hill Seafood, will host this fabulous event at their beautiful home in McLeansville, NC. This package includes all the fixin's for an oyster roast including beer and wine.
A recent winner of this event had this to say, “The Conrad’s lovely, inviting home has been the place where wonderful memories were made. Ken and Lee graciously opened up their home to share delicious food in a relaxed, beautiful atmosphere. Ken has a passion for roasting seafood and meat and has clearly perfected the art of roasting oysters. The oysters, delivered fresh for the gathering, melt in your mouth as they slide down. Shucking the oysters and eating savory accompaniments alongside friends in their open kitchen is the perfect venue to enjoy the company of friends while having a fun project. I am grateful to Ken and Lee for hosting truly memorable celebrations with the intention of raising money for JDRF, an organization near and dear to my heart.”

We are excited and fortunate to have Kelly Rightsell along with 9 local JDRF children create a one of a kind piece of artwork for this evening.
Children, pets, patterns, fresh colors and unique perspectives define Kelly Rightsell’s art. From impressionistic paintings to precious children’s room décor, it comes as no surprise that the major influences on her artwork have been her love for children and animals.
Her love for children is truly expressed by her painting presented this evening entitled, “Faces of Hope”. Kelly shared her talents with these budding artists from the JDRF Triad Chapter. The thousands of finger prints on the painting represent the thousands of finger pricks each of these children endure each year. The word, “hope” is representative of what each of these children possess in their hope for a cure. Kelly has truly been a face of hope to these children for her wonderful contribution.
A special thanks also goes to former board member, Sam Froelich, for documenting this project from start to finish.
