Marcus Anderson & Friends and Beyu Caffe will be supporting our North Carolina neighbors in the hurricane relief efforts by supporting the COLORFEST HURRICANE RELIEF FUND.  Instead of a ticket price, we will instead ask for donations to Colorfest Hurricane Relief Fund.

Lead by Marcus Anderson, the line-up will include Arrik Duncan from “Niito”, Darnell “Showcase” Taylor from Anthony Hamilton, Brian Miller, Alan Thompson from “ZooCru”, Marcel Anderson, and many more! Donations will be collected at https://www.paypal.me/Colorfestinc

Please note, Reservations cannot be made for this event. Seats are given out on a first come, first served basis. To ensure that your party is seated together all people must be present. We will do our best to accommodate guests, but seating is not guaranteed for parties with late arrivals. 

We will also be collecting items for donation to assist those in need:

  • Canned Fruits, Vegetables, Meat, and Soup (Pop-top cans and low sodium a plus!)
  • Whole Grain Pasta, Brown Rice, Dried Beans, and Cereal

City Manager Mark Stephens said the city had suffered one of the most devastating storms in its 308 year history. He said more than 400 city staff members had been working to mitigate the impact of Hurricane Florence. Stephens said preliminary assessments show more than 4,300 homes and 300 businesses were damaged or destroyed in the storm. Stephens said he expected that number to increase as residents and business owners return to the city and evaluate their properties. City inspectors had begun a more detailed assessment of damages as of Sunday morning, said Stephens, who stressed that the process would take several weeks to complete. He said early damage estimates are in excess of $6 million dollars.” New Bern Sun Journal
