Nicole Ducouer, WXII News Anchor, will be helping raise money for the “Bags of Love” food ministry March 2.
This is in response to a “I Dare Docouer” challenge extended by RagApple Lassie grandson, twelve-year-old Jack Turner. The event will take place from 12 p.m. until 6 p.m. with Docouer present from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m.
Stimulated by the impact of the Feeding America BackPack Program, RagApple Lassie owner Frank Hobson’s cousin Eloise Crissman founded “Bags of Love” in Yadkin County. The program originally provided 58 children at risk of going hungry with a ‘bag’ of nutritious, kid-friendly foods to take home each weekend. Now in its third year, Eloise and her staff pack 610 items each week into handmade bags made with love for hungry children. All donations collected on March 2 will go directly to this food ministry.
Everyone is invited to attend and meet Docouer, said Turner. Guests are encouraged to enjoy a wine tasting of ten RagApple Lassie wines with Owner Hobson for a donation of $20 or more to benefit the food ministry. One hundred percent of the proceeds go to “Bags of Love.”
TC Montana will perform throughout the day. The group is a student band from Appalachian State University.
