NCC Event to Celebrate the Legacy of Debbie Kornegay


Make plans to join Debbie’s Fund and Nash Community College for Bounty and Barrel on Thursday, November 4 from 6:00 until 8:00 PM in the college’s Business and Industry Center.

Debbie’s Fund was established as a memorial tribute to Debbie Kornegay, her legacy, passion for cooking, ministry of service, and commitment to education, and has impacted many lives throughout North Carolina. This year’s event will celebrate Debbie’s love for the coast with shrimp and oysters provided by Sunny Side Oyster Bar in Williamston, NC.

Sponsored by Rocky Mount Mills, Bounty and Barrel will feature live music by Boyd & Morgan, dessert from The Cheesecake Factory Bakery and craft beer sample pours. Special thanks to the following breweries for providing collaboration beers for the event: Hopfly Brewing Company, Mythic Brewing, Koi Pond Brewing Company, TBC West, SpaceWay Brewing Company, The Glass Jug Beer Lab, Barrel Culture Brewing Blending and Crystal Coast Brewing Company. Plus, attendees will have the opportunity to browse Debbie’s original hand-crafted pottery and bid during the silent auction.

“We are once again honored to host this event to pay tribute to the memory of one of our community’s most beloved people, Debbie Kornegay,” NCC Vice President of Advancement Pam Ballew said. “Debbie’s love of others, her hospitality and enjoyment of good food are always top of mind when we are planning this event. It’s going to be a lot of fun!”

All proceeds will benefit Debbie’s Fund and the Nash Community College Foundation.

Individual admission is $65. Table sponsorship is available for $1,000. Admission for eight is included in sponsorship.
