Elizabeth City, NC – Albemarle Area United Way will gather at Waterfront Park again this spring to hold its 6th annual Bocce, Beer & Bites event.  The event will take place on Saturday, April 27, 2024, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  This popular event, typically attracting 350 attendees, will enable up to 48 teams to compete in the double elimination bocce tournament consisting of 4-person teams. Teams can be purchased for $200 until sold out or until April 19th.

Each team member as well as spectators who purchase a $30 ticket receives two craft beers, a full BBQ plate and a Kona shave ice. Meal-only tickets can be purchased at $20 each, or a family 4-pack can be purchased for the discounted rate of $70. Complimentary bottles of water and assorted can sodas are available to all throughout the event.

“We’re excited to host this very popular community fundraising event. Each year we’ve seen an increase in participation and sponsorships,” said Bill Blake, Executive Director. “Bocce is easily played by all ages and skill levels as evidenced by the fact that we’ve had different winning teams in the past competition. The real winners are our friends and neighbors who benefit from the programs and services supported by your local United Way.” Blake added.
