TowneBank is pleased to once again announce its title sponsorship of the 6th Annual Couture by the Shore, a fun, festive annual Spring event where fashion and fundraising unite to help the Outer Banks Relief Foundation. 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.”
Couture by the Shore is being held this year on May 7, 2016, from 11am – 3pm at Kelly’s Outer Banks Restaurant & Tavern in Nags Head. The event ticket includes a delicious luncheon catered by Kelly’s, adult beverages, the best silent auction on the beach, an OBX Vacation raffle and of course the main event, the fashion show. Tickets are $40 and are available for purchase at the 12 participating retailers: All Ducked Out, Birthday Suits, Foxy Flamingo, The French Door, Gray’s Sportswear, Honey & Hive Boutique, Life’s a Beach, Sleeping In, Ltd., The Sun Shack, Untucked – Resort Apparel for Men, Whalebone Surf Shop and Zen & Zip.
