ASHEVILLE NC – On Sunday, October 5th a group of Highlands residents are hosting “Highlands on the Half-Shell” in the amphitheatre behind the Nature Center to support the Highlands Biological Foundation. Feast on oysters, shrimp and jambalaya while enjoying the energetic tunes of Asheville’s Firecracker Jazz Band. The Highlands Biological Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides critical support for the Biological Station, Nature Center and Botanical Garden. Thanks to the generosity of members and community residents, admission to the Nature Center and Botanical Garden are free. Knowing that your support is directly contributing to conservation efforts in the southern Appalachian Mountains, you’ll find that oysters and jambalaya have never tasted – and jazz never sounded – so good.
The fun starts at 4:30pm and will last until dark. Come dressed in your favorite “Cajun casual.” Tickets are $75 for members and $100 for non-members. To purchase tickets, visit www.highlandsbiological.org/half-shell/. This event is hosted by Martha & Hal Stibbs, Jennie & Sto Stowers, Cookie & Harrison Jones, Nancy & Lyle Nichols, Julia & Bill Grumbles, Amanda & Greg Gregory, Vevie & Lawrence Dimmitt, Paul Sanger, and Diane & Ray McPhail.
