RALEIGH, NC . . . North State Bank’s Summer Salute for Transitions LifeCare, originally scheduled for May 2, 2020,  was canceled due to concerns and restrictions surrounding COVID-19. Even though the event cannot take place this year, Transitions LifeCare and North State Bank remain committed to supporting those who need care, as well as their families and friends.

“Extraordinary events necessitated the cancellation of this annual event,” shared Sandra A. Temple, co-chair of Summer Salute, “However, the need is still great and this organization and the people they serve need our help. For that reason, we want to provide to Transitions LifeCare as much support as possible despite the cancellation of our 17th annual in-person event.”

  • 10 Days of Summer Salute Online Auction: After the Summer Fun Raffle drawing, the selected prize will be set aside for the winner and the remaining prize will be added to a wonderful array of items in the online auction: 10 Days of Summer Salute, scheduled for August 18 – August 28.
