The Lake Lure Dragon Boat Race & Festival organization of Lake Lure, N.C. is seeking beneficiary applications from 501(c)(3) non-profit programs and organizations whose purpose is to improve the quality of life and future of our local and regional children within Buncombe, Henderson, Polk and Rutherford counties.

On May 8, the Lure of the Dragons Race & Festival will once again take place. The past two years has attracted approximately 2,000 spectators per event. Each year the event has raised and distributed $10,000 to selected organizations.

The purpose of this sporting event is to raise money to donate to selected qualifying beneficiaries. To be considered, your organization must hold a current IRS designated 501(c)(3) public, non-profit status and be providing programs or services which improve childrens lives within these four counties.
