Burgaw, NC – The Ghost Walk of Pender’s Past gifts its non-profit partners with proceeds from this year’s event.
Stephanie Key, the Ghost Walk’s artistic director, and the Pender County Tourism Office were pleased to award three non-profit partners with the earnings from the event’s October 2023 proceeds.
All proceeds from the Ghost Walk are divided equally between the Pender County Historical Society, Pender Arts Council, and the Historical Society of Topsail Island. Each entity was awarded $1705.00 to apply toward the mission of its organization.
The Ghost Walk of Pender’s Past October event, a haunting historical tour around Burgaw’s historic cemetery, was another huge success, a sellout event for the sixth year in a row.
“Its success can only be attributed to the numerous volunteers who make this event happen,” said Stephanie Key, artistic director. “We have wonderful volunteers who make this annual event even possible.”
The Ghost Walk of Pender’s Past is a collaborative effort of volunteers from the Pender County Historical Society, Historical Society of Topsail Island, Pender Arts Council, Moores Creek National Battlefield, the Town of Burgaw, Burgaw Tourism Authority, Pender County Parks and Recreation, the Pender County Library, Pender County Schools, and Pender County Tourism.
