The Community Foundation of NC East was honored to be a major sponsor for the 2019 North Carolina Azalea Festival again this year. The event was a tremendous success and congratulations to the entire Azalea Festival staff, board leadership and all of the sponsors for helping make this another outstanding year. We are proud to be part of Wilmington’s most spectacular event of the year and the largest festival in the state of North Carolina. This year, our Foundation was also extremely pleased to be the official sponsor for the Azalea Festival statewide Youth Art Contest. The entries were beautiful and made it very difficult for us to narrow down, but the winners were indeed outstanding!
