CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WECT) – Oysters are on the menu at an upcoming dinner in honor of a popular Pleasure Island chef.
The oyster roast will be held to benefit the Michael McGowan Endowed Scholarship Fund at Cape Fear Community College on Sunday, July 21.
The event will take place from 6:00 to 9:00 pm at Surf House Surf Camp and Oyster Bar at 604 N. Lake Park Boulevard.
Tickets are $35 each.
A portion of the proceeds are benefiting the scholarship fund.
McGowan lost his battle with Cystic Fibrosis in 2012.
Family and friends say they wanted the scholarship to be community based because of McGowan's love for the area.
That’s why the scholarship was created to students in CFCC’s culinary program.
The goal is to raise $20,000 to help students with their college tuition.
