Restaurants donated half their food sales from Sept. 17

On Tues. Sept. 17, several members of the Outer Banks Restaurant Association participated in Dine Out for Disaster Relief. Participating restaurants donated 50% of their food sales to the Outer Banks Community Foundation to help our neighbors in Hatters and Ocracoke.

Dan Lewis, president of the Outer Banks Restaurant Association, and owner of Coastal Provisions Oyster Bar & Wine Bar Café said, “When disaster or hardship strikes our neighbors, it’s natural for us in the restaurant community to want to provide, and comfort with what we do best -food. But it was apparent very shortly after Dorian struck via releases from the Emergency Management teams, that the best way to help was not in goods, but with monetary donations to the [Outer Banks] Community Foundation Disaster Relief fund.”
