How to Get Involved

Roastin' History

Ken and Lee Conrad were known for their hospitality but it was their huge fish fry's and oyster roasts that stood out to their friends and family.


As the Crew looked for opportunities to support the cause, oyster roasts seemed like a natural fit.   The first oyster roast fundraiser was held in Feb 2016 in one of the Crew's back yard.   It raised about $1200 for PANCAN through donations and t-shirt sales.


The events got bigger quick, though, and soon out grew the back yard.  The first official "Roastin' for Research" was held at Charlotte's Divine Barrel Brewing in November 2021, followed by a second at Greensboro's Bender's Tavern in April.    Together the two roasts grossed over $50,000 for childhood cancer through Reelin' for Research and UNC Children's Hospital.
