OBAR's Disaster Relief and Scholarship Funds are held with the Outer Banks Community Foundation. OBAR holds three charitable events each year referred to as "Surf, Turf, and Roll" - a Bowling, Golf, and Surf Fishing Tournament - with all proceeds benefitting the two funds. A special thanks to all that have participated in and supported these events to make our scholarships and helping those in need possible!
