After two years of virtual fundraising, the in-person event returns, bringing an evening of beach music, dancing, food, and live and online auctions, all for a great cause.
RALEIGH, NC . . . Are you ready to head back to the beach? North State Bank’s Summer Salute for Transitions LifeCare, Raleigh’s premier beach party, once again will be in-person in 2022! After two years of virtual fundraising, Summer Salute will be Saturday evening, May 14, 2022, at Raleigh’s North Ridge Country Club, it was announced by Sondra Collins and Jim Branch, event co-chairs.

The beach-inspired evening returns with familiar and much-loved music by The Embers with Craig Woolard. The Embers are North Carolina’s beach music band, and it is hard to hear them and not start the steps to the Carolina Shag. Added to the fundraiser in 2020, the 10 Days of Summer Salute online auction is also back in 2022! It will launch on Thursday, May 5, 2022, featuring unique items and experiences.

Leading into its 19th year, Summer Salute has donated over two million dollars to Transitions LifeCare through sponsorships, donations, the Summer Fun Raffle, and the 10 Days of Summer Salute online auction. Funds from the event support patients and families in need of hospice and palliative services in our region who otherwise could not afford care.
