Thanks to Food Network star Guy Fieri, not only does Wilmington cuisine get featured worldwide, but our local girls charter school gets a big fundraising boost!

Today and tomorrow, Guy will be filming the Wilmington episode of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. He’ll be at Fork N Cork, Copper Penny, Something Fishy, Sweet n Savory Cafe, and Ceviche’s. Then on Friday he will host a lunch and a dinner which are both sold out for the charter school, GLOW Academy of Wilmington!  Thanks Guy! We appreciate you! And happy birthday! Hope you had fun yesterday!
