Mark your calendars for this annual Mother’s Day Weekend event! TowneBank will be the presenting sponsor once again of the Annual Couture By The Shore;a fun, festive Spring event where fashion and fundraising unite to help the Outer Banks Relief Foundation. This year’s theme is “The Garden… Where Relief Blossoms” and will feature a lush catwalk with local models showcasing designs from 14 participating local OBX boutiques.
* Silent Auction: Viewed by many as the best Silent Auction on the beach, this year’s auction features beautiful artwork, jewelry, fashion items from all thirteen of our participating retailers, an Aspen Ski vacation package, and services and gift certificates from businesses all over the Outer Banks.
* Donation Pledge Drive: A part of the day’s event is the pledge drive for donations. This is an amazing opportunity for people that believe in the mission of our Relief Foundation and understand the value of our gifts of financial assistance to those in need. 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.
* Fashion on Display: Mannequins will be placed throughout the venue representing each of our retailers: All Ducked Out, Birthday Suits, Barre Station, OBX French Door, Gray’s Department Stores, Mudpie, Sleeping In Ltd, The Sun Shack, Whalebone Surf Shop, Foxy Flamingo, Life’s a Beach, Untucked, Shea Leslie and Zen & Zip
* Signature Couture Glass: Wine will be served in a specially designed Couture Stemless Champagne Flute that is yours to take home. Don’t drink wine? No problem, just ask for one at the beverage serving station.
The $45 event ticket includes a delicious luncheon, adult beverages, the best silent auction on the beach, an OBX Vacation raffle and of course the main event, the fashion show. Visit any of the retail locations above to tickets or call the office at 252-261-2004 for details.
