Rooster’s, First Bank team up for Spirits for Giving this Friday

By on January 30, 2018

In May 2015, Sue and John Woolard opened the doors of their newly rebranded restaurant, Rooster’s Southern Kitchen in Kill Devil Hills.

This new venture offered an opportunity for a fresh new concept in a beautifully remodeled space.

As business owners on the Outer Banks for over 30 years, they wanted to find a way to give back to the community through their large, centrally located restaurant.


In the fall of 2015, the first bourbon tastings were launched. Local non-profit organizations and foundations are chosen as beneficiaries of each of the tastings, held monthly in the off-season.

They choose organizations that directly serve or support children, education, or those in crisis or need in our community.

For a $25 donation, guests enjoy six bourbon samplings and tapas-style appetizers. 100% on the tasting proceeds are donated.

Additionally, Rooster’s donates 10 percent of lunch and dinner sales on the first Friday of the month to the chosen organization, allowing even more guests another way to join in on the giving.

Over the last two years, Rooster’s Southern Kitchen’s “Spirits for Giving” bourbon tastings have raised over $25,000 for the Outer Banks community.


For February Rooster’s is partnering with First Bank to put on a great event for February’s beneficiaries: Dare Education Foundation and Outer Banks Relief Foundation.

We are combining two beneficiaries this month because last month’s tasting for OBX Relief Foundation was cancelled due to snow.

Dare Education’s mission is “making great ideas in education come to life by funding initiatives that enhance the experiences of students and teachers in Dare County.” To learn more about this incredible organization, please visit


Outer Banks Relief Foundation’s mission is to “raise local funds to be used to assist people living or working in our Outer Banks community who are burdened with financial difficulties because of a debilitating disease or illness, or a personal tragedy with themselves or a family member.”

    It’s First Bank. Not First South, aka CresCom Bank. Please correct. Thanks!
