SAM & Eggs

Since 2006, SAM & Eggs has provided significant financial support for Samaritan Ministries. The goal for 2021 is $200,000. All money raised stays in the community to help hungry and homeless people.

SAM & Eggs, 2021, historically an in-person event, will be a hybrid this year as we gradually return to normal after the COVID-19 pandemic hit our community hard. The safety of our supporters is Samaritan’s top priority so we have decided to reduce the maximum number of attendees in order to keep a comfortable and safe distance.

The 2021 SAM & Eggs event will be held on Wednesday, September 29, 2021 at 7:30 a.m. at Bridger Field House, as well as being streamed online at SAM & Eggs funding will be critical this year due to increased expenses around our operational adjustments during the pandemic and uncertainty regarding revenue in the coming months.

Please contact Karen Bell Chandler at 336-448-2664, or, for more information about the event and sponsorship opportunities.
