On this rainy February day, we pause for a few moments to learn from both our successes and stumbles in delivering great experiences. One area where we’re particularly proud of is our sustained commitment on behalf of our homeowners, guests, and staff, to create a true community asset that reinvests in both the people and place we call home. During our 40th year, Twiddy & Company was humbled to have been able to once more support many local and regional organizations in the area. Ranging from historic preservation to veterans causes, and from educational support to children’s healthcare, our team believes in translating business success to community opportunity. By choosing Twiddy & Company to trust with your vacation experiences, you’re also supporting these worthy and vibrant organizations. We, and they, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Some of the groups, people, and places we supported with time, energy, or money last year include: The Currituck-Dare County Community Foundation The North Carolina Community Foundation (Hurricane Florence) OBX Running Company Outer Banks Community Foundation (Local grants and scholarships) The Outer Banks Community Foundation’s Lorelei Costa with our own Chris Trimble at a recent event that benefited the Outer Banks Hospital and patient care on the Outer Banks! Food Bank of the Albemarle Holt Brothers Foundation Children’s Cancer Research Foundation Dare County Arts Council Children’s Miracle Network Foundation Blue Water Associates Make-A-Wish Foundation (We love this group and love hosting them!) Future Business Leaders of America (Our future guest experience leaders) Kitty Hawk Elementary PTA Nags Head Elementary School Outer Banks Association of Realtors Covenant House Kitty Hawk Rotary Club Outer Banks Veterans of Foreign Wars TowneBank Foundation (Their main event helped raise $475,000 in one day) Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters (near and dear to us) Kitty Hawk Methodist Church College of the Albemarle Beaufort County Community College The Friends of the North Carolina Aquarium The Old Dominion University Athletic Fund Waters Edge Village School It’s worth saying that as we support these organizations, we don’t do it for the credit, but for the cause itself and we look for people connections within our business family to guide us in our decisions.
