High Point Oyster Roast

The 27th Annual High Point Oyster Roast
Presented by

Event Co-Chairs:  Chris Wynne & Kerr Ramsay

We are very pleased to announce the 27th Annual High Point Oyster Roast in support of Family Service of High Point Foundation presented by the Lenny Peters Foundation/Bethany Medical Center. For over two decades, the Oyster Roast has become firmly established on High Point’s social calendar and has earned a reputation as one of the preeminent fundraisers in our community. The 2020 event raised $215,000 to support programs for High Point children and families in crisis.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to host our traditional 650+ in-person event. However, to continue to raise funds to support the work of Family Service we are launching the High Point Oyster Roast – Safe at Home Campaign which will culminate with a Drive Thru Event on Friday, March 5, 2021 at the amazing Congdon Yards. Stay tuned for more details!

We hope you and your family are Safe at Home, but we know many in our community are not safe. In fact, the issues that Family Service addresses – domestic violence, child abuse, mental health and financial stability – are only worsened by economic struggle and isolation created by the pandemic. Family Service has been open during the pandemic and is continuing to see clients.

  • Calls to our crisis line are involving situations that are more complex, intense and higher risk. The number of domestic violence homicides in Guilford County is up 250% from last year.
  • Our partners are reporting a 70% increase in child abuse cases and a 106% increase in internet crimes against children.

At the Drive Thru Event, sponsors and hosts will be able to pick-up an Oyster Roast Party Pack, which includes dinner and dessert equivalent to the number of tickets traditionally associated with their sponsorship and a fun swag bag. In lieu of the Pearls of the Oyster Roast Cocktail Party, sponsors at the $2,500+ levels will receive additional special benefits.

We hope you will consider supporting the High Point Oyster Roast – Safe at Home Campaign to help fund local programs of Family Service of the Piedmont in High Point.
