This year’s theme is “Nashville to Nags Head” and will feature a cool country catwalk with local models showcasing designs from 12 participating local OBX boutiques and a special appearance from our one and only Patsy Cline! Performance is courtesy of the Elizabeth R & Company Production of “A Portrait of Patsy Cline.”

“We are honored by TowneBank’s generosity and renewed commitment to once again be a part of this annual event where locals and visitors can come together for a fun-filled afternoon and raise money for those in need in our community,” says Millie Ward, Relief Foundation co-founder and event chair. “The Outer Banks Relief Foundation is currently in a position in which the need in the community is greater than the funds available so it is especially critical this year to raise money.”
