The Holiday Concerts sponsored by FOX8 and Old Dominion Freight Line have provided The Salvation Army with food to help feed those in need. Millions of cans of food have been collected since 1987. This is the 27th year for the Greensboro concert, the 25th year for the Winston-Salem concert and the 8th year for the Burlington concert. In total, we have collected 6.7 million cans for families across the Piedmont.

This is the largest and most important food raising event of the year for The Salvation Army. Last year, over 20,000 people where served.

Annually, over 17,000 people attend the concerts. In 2013, we collected over 468,000 cans of food with 30 companies participating in the Holiday Food Drive.

food-driveFor years, the Holiday Concerts have been held at the Greensboro Coliseum, Lawrence Joel Veteran Memorial and in Burlington and are a proven tradition offering quality holiday entertainment. The Concerts invite families to attend an evening of music provided by the Greensboro and Winston Salem Symphony’s. The “cost” to attend is a can of food.

In recent years, the need in the TRIAD has exceeded the cans collections at the concerts. That is why FOX8, Old Dominion Freight Line and The Salvation Army are reaching out to local businesses to participate in an eight week campaign culminating with the Concerts (Winston-Salem: December 13, Greensboro: December 14, Burlington: December 19).

THE BASIL LEAF: SOME LIKE IT HOT, SO LET’S TURN UP THE HEAT TILL WE FRY

Originally posted on Food and Brew Review:

Jerry and I are pepper heads. We love spicy Asian food. The hotter; the better. My parents however prefer mild but flavorful dishes. This can make take-out for the four of us tricky. If a restaurant has food hot enough for Jerry and me, my parents usually can’t find anything they can eat and swear we are trying to kill them (Cause of Death: Death By Capsaicin). That problem is solved when we order from The Basil Leaf. This neighborhood restaurant is one of our favorite go-to choices for take-out. On Sunday evening, we were craving a pepper hit. Jerry phoned in our order, and it was ready shortly after he arrived at the restaurant. As soon as he was back home and the Styrofoam containers hit the table, we dug in. We started with the Spring Rolls (4 per order). The rolls matched the menu description to a ‘T’…

Ray Publishing:

Great News for North Carolina Film Makers. Under The Dome Returns to Wilmywood for a 3rd Season!

Originally posted on The Wilmywood Daily:

Yep!  It’s official.  After months of consideration and some really hard work from a few folks, Under the Dome will be returning to Wilmywood after all.  WECT confirmed the information with EUE/Screen Gems Vice Prez Bill Vassar less than an hour ago.

CBS made the announcement earlier today that there was indeed a Season 3.

From the press release from EUE/Screen Gems Studios:

“We are thrilled to host ‘Under the Dome’ at our studios for 2015,” Vassar said. “We extend our gratitude to North Carolina Secretary of Commerce Sharon Decker for helping make this possible.”

“Retaining the production of “Under the Dome” provides economic stability for hundreds of North Carolina film workers and several hundred of Wilmington’s small businesses. Renewal of this production was critical to our local area,” Vassar says.  SEE MORE

It’s not 4200  jobs, but at least we can know some of our Wilmington families will be working…
