Proceeds from the Tour
The Back Door Kitchen Tour is the only fundraiser for Residents of Old Wilmington (ROW), a nonprofit, all volunteer, neighborhood association. Proceeds go back into our community for beautification, preservation, restoration, and other improvements through ROW projects and grants.  If you have questions, please contact us at bdkt@rowilmington.org.
Most famously, ROW used BDKT proceeds to purchase the statue of the Venus Flytrap by Paul Hill, titled "Southern Hospitality," located on the River Walk at the foot of Market Street. 
Southern Hospitality is a popular addition to the downtown Riverfront, and a graceful homage to the plant that grows only in this area. 
ROW has donated over $60,000 to area nonprofits thanks to BDKT proceeds.
