The Virginia Beach Education Foundation (VBEF) will host one of its biggest fundraisers, the Pearls of Wisdom Oyster Roast and Barbecue, Saturday, April 16, 1-5 p.m. at 24th Street Park at the oceanfront.
Discounted adult tickets are available for $40 for one more week. Beginning March 17, the price increases to $50. Tickets for children (ages 6-12) are $15. Each ticket includes an all-you-can-eat buffet of raw and roasted oysters, pork barbecue, fried fish, chicken, Hatteras-style clam chowder and beverages. The event also features free entertainment by Wonderland and a live auction.
Pearls of Wisdom tickets are available for purchase online or by calling VBEF coordinator Debbie Griffey at 757-263-1337.
Proceeds from ticket sales help fund innovative and schoolwide grant projects in the school division. This school year, VBEF awarded $110,000 to deserving teachers and schools. More information about VBEF grant projects is available on the Adopt A+ Grants webpage.
