Our "Blitz the Banks" community awareness campaign shone a spotlight on this great event that brought 525 VIPS and their sighted guests to the Outer Banks from across the U.S. and Canada. The event also involves more than 350 local volunteers plus an additional 125 student volunteers from high school and college.
