Outer Banks Boil Company’s charitable arm, EPIC Project, Inc., is seeking nominations for a deserving family to experience an EPIC Outer Banks Vacation.
Outer Banks Boil Company celebrates the tradition of the quintessential summer beach vacation and are honored to be a part of so many family vacation traditions in the Outer Banks. We realize that for every family we serve, there are several others who are unable to enjoy this well deserved break.
It’s been well proven that family vacations can greatly impact the mental health and well being of individuals and families. From simple relaxation to family bonding, we want to ensure one deserving family gets to enjoy all the benefits of an EPIC family vacation without the financial burden that makes it difficult for some families to do so.
Beginning with a one week rental, August 5-12 at “Footprints in the Sand” a beautiful six bedroom home located in the Corolla Light Community, we’ll make sure our deserving family has a great home-base for their vacation.
Once our family is chosen we will put together a great menu of activities they can choose from. A trip to the 4×4 beach to see the wild horses, a round of mini golf, water sports, a visit to the boat museum and the historic Whalehead Club are just a few of the many available options. We’ll also cover meals for our family while they are here including an EPIC Outer Banks Boil Company Boil! A travel voucher will help offset expenses in getting our family to the Outer Banks.
Nominations are being collected via the form available at OurEPICproject.com through the month of April. Individuals may submit either a written (a maximum of 750 words) or video nomination via the website. The winner will be selected on June 1, 2023.
Our EPIC Project, an acronym for Emitting Positive Impact Collectively, was founded to strengthen, support and share the local beach communities that Outer Banks Boil Company is proud to serve. Beginning with its first location in Corolla, three distinct and powerful programs will be to strengthen mental health initiatives, support entrepreneurial spirit and share all the community has to offer by providing an EPIC vacation to a deserving family.
The program originates with the one week rental of a vacation cottage in Corolla, North Carolina, home to OBBC. Collectively, with cooperation of local business partners, OBBC will provide accommodations, meals, activities and experiences to ensure an EPIC vacation for the deserving family. Hopes to expand the program to additional weeks in additional markets, develop Chapters, and eventually purchase “Boil Houses” where we can host multiple families all season long.
“Outer Banks Boil Company has always been dedicated to giving back. We are so grateful and excited for this opportunity to work together with our customers and fellow business owners to be EPIC (emit positive impact collectively).” stated Matt Khouri. Mom, Denise Khouri, president of Our EPIC Project added “This is a dream to be able to do this type of good work! So many local businesses are already stepping up to get involved! We are so excited to get started and watch this project grow!
