Big grant awarded to The Filling Station, Trails to Tryon sees success in first event

The Craven County Tourism Development Authority’s Sports and Events Committee’s inaugural event was a success in more ways than one.

The Filling Station has been named a 2023 Chick-fil-A True Inspiration Award grant recipient! We have received $75,000 to further our work in Jones County, NC

The True Inspiration Awards were established in 2015 to carry on Chick-fil-A Founder S. Truett Cathy’s legacy of generosity and community service. To be selected, a nonprofit must work to address a key issue that aligns with Chick-fil-A’s corporate social responsibility priorities: Caring for People, Caring for Others through Food, Caring for Our Communities, and Caring for our Planet.

With this grant, a Leadership Academy will be made possible by educating, equipping, and empowering residents of Jones County with key leadership skills. This opportunity will impact generations to come.

We would like to thank Operator, Tom Pike from New Bern, NC Chick-Fil-A for nominating us for this award. We are grateful for your continued support and cannot wait to continue doing great work in our community.

Trail to Tryon wraps up successful first event

Not knowing how many participants would sign up for the first Trails to Tryon 5K, 10K and half marathon, the event ran away with success, raising $4,000 the local American Legion Post 539.

The newly formed Craven County Tourism Development Authority’s Sports and Events Committee hosted Trail to Tryon Nov. 12-15 and was the committee’s inaugural event. The committee’s focus is to identify opportunities for sports-leisure events in Craven County.
