On September 26, United Way of Coastal Carolina hosted the New Bern Area Chamber of Commerce's Business Before Hours at the UWCC office on Broad Street. Chamber members enjoyed a delicious breakfast spread and coffee while mingling and checking out the nostalgic 1957 decor. This year's event marked the official Kick Off of the UWCC annual giving campaign and Celebration of the 60th Anniversay of UW in New Bern.A highlight of the morning was a spirited auction for a genuine #59 Carolina Panthers jersey, personally signed by Luke Kuechly. The winner left with a priceless gift for his young son.
In addition to the food and fellowship, Chamber members enjoyed a visit from Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, and a beautifully restored 1957 Thunderbird
