This is an Outer Banks Relief Foundation Charity Event (in conjunction with Outer Banks Relief Foundation’s Christmas in July, RED NOSE fundraiser) , and is one of the many fundraisers held by the Foundation as it fills its mission to serve our community whose mission is simple: to financially assist those in our community who are faced with debilitating illness or tragedy.
