Fashion, food, a little wine and it’s all for a good cause. Couture by the Shore is celebrating its 9th annual fundraising event for the Outer Banks Relief Foundation, and this is one fashions how that should not one missed.
It’s an afternoon affair on Saturday, May 11 beginning at 11:00 a.m. at Duck Woods Country Club in Southern Shores.
There are 10 retailers outfitting the runway models this year: Birthday Suits, Foxy Flamingo Boutique, Grays Sportswear, Honey & Hive Boutique, Life’s A Beach, Mudpie, Outer Banks Boarding Company, The French Door, Untucked, and Zen & Zip.
And the models? They’re employees and friends. In other words friends and neighbors of just about everyone on the Outer Banks.
The event, as much as it’s a lot of fun, serves a really important function—it is one of the largest fundraisers for the Outer Banks Relief Foundation.
The Relief Foundation is often the first organization to reach out to local residents in times of need. If there is a house fine, they are often the first ones to offer the financial assistance needed to find temporary housing. When families face devastating illnesses, it’s the Relief Foundation that often stops forward to provide transportation or other services.
In the 13 years since the organization was founded, the foundations helped more than 850 families, providing $1.75 million in aid. That’s more then 65 families helped every year.
Joe Lamb, Jr. & Associates is a proud sponsor of this event and we would love to see the Duck Woods banquet room filled to capacity.
Tickets are available at any of the ten stores dressing the models.
