Blue Moon gift shops, along with other vendors, hosted a fundraiser for the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Hospital on Saturday. Visitors were able to enter a raffle, see a fashion show, and taste one-of-a-kind treats to support a good cause. The hospital, located in North Topsail, is a safe haven for injured sea turtles. "All proceeds are going to go to the sea turtle hospital because they have no national funding, federal funding, everything is volunteers. They only get money through donations, so we were more than happy to participate,” said Mary Ann Masucci, Blue Moon owner. Ten percent of today's sales along with the raffle proceeds will go to the sea turtle hospital.
