Cape Fear Country Club bars us from covering Cape Fear Garden Club event
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The Cape Fear Country Club barred us this morning from covering a Cape Fear Garden Club event.
The garden club is meeting at the county club to announce the cash disbursements of the proceeds from its Azalea Garden Tour and wanted to share that news with the Wilmington community.
However, when we called to let them know we were coming over to cover the event, the country club told us that we were not allowed on the property and we would have to get special permission from the board.
The purpose of the Azalea Garden Tour is to generate money to create grants for non-profit organizations.
More than $50,000 will be donated to more than a dozen worthy recipients for the purpose of beautifying a particular area of New Hanover County or giving a scholarship to a college student.
Needless to say we don’t know who the winners are, because we were barred from covering it.
