Riff Tides in concert. Great music from the 1950s and 60s.

When we took some time to compile all the events that are happening on the Outer Banks in February we were really surprised at just how much there is to do. And something that really jumped out at us are three event that are all about helping others. 

It doesnt’ hurt that they should be a lot of fun.

Mike Kelly has a well-deserved reputation for reaching community involvement and sponsoring the Riff Tides in a charity event for GEM Adult Services on Sunday, February 12 is very much a part of that tradition.

GEM is a local nonprofit that words with people suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease. 

The Riff Tides do a great job of playing the music of the 1950s snd 60s so this should be a great time for a good cause.

February 18 is pretty much the depths of winter, but for some hearty souls, that’s the time to take the Outer Banks Polar Plunge for Cystic Fibrosis. 

The water temperature is sitting at 46 degrees right now, and there’s not much chance it’s going to warm between now and next Saturday. 

It should be fun though. Food following the event and all proceeds go directly to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

The big charity event for the month, though, has got to be the Signature Chef’s Auction as the Duck Woods Country Club in Southern Shores. 

The kickoff of the Outer Banks March of Dimes spring events, the Chef’s Auction has become one of the best charity event of the year.
