Festival visionary, and local OBX business owner, Mike Dianna, dreamed up this righteous festival that is steadily growing four years ago stating, “I want to produce a festival that musicians want to play; an event where vendors have a blast while making a profit; where sponsors not only have a fantastic time entertaining their clients, friends and families, but also leave them wanting to support the event annually; a festival where patrons and fans await the next year the moment that they step off of the site; an event which benefits one of the region’s most sacred assets, the Corolla Wild Horses.”
Dewey was a SAGA Construction Superintendent who stricken by chest pains on May 28th, following a final run thru of two new homes in KDH at about 7:00 AM, and as stars align, Capt. Mark Evans was driving nearby and responded, incidentally, with the only Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) on patrol that day. Subsequently, we found out this was one of only two available for 15 cars and the most likely First Responder in OBX is a Patrol Officer. Capt. Evans was that Officer and he revived Dewey Parr. Once the dust settled it occurred to SAGA that the odds of being saved were more by chance than a realistic possibility.
SAGA Construction & Development is proud to join in the worldwide fight to eradicate polio. Recently SAGA joined forces with the local Outer Banks Rotary Clubs and was successful in raising $9500 to eliminate polio across the globe!
Rotary International has been a champion in the fight against polio since 1988, making it their number one initiative to eradicate polio worldwide. Today, 99% of children, 1.8 billion people across 11 countries, are polio-free thanks to unprecedented commitment from governments, exceptional program quality, and the dedication of millions of community health workers and volunteers. We only have 1% to go! It costs only $1.20 to vaccinate each child against polio. Our $9500 efforts will vaccinate over 7900 children from contracting this crippling disease.
This year’s event was held at Professor Hacker’s Lost Treasure Golf on Saturday, April 26. Roving bands of pirates from local schools donned their best pirate attire and demonstrated fun-filled shenanigans, entertaining the crowd with sword-fighting and sea-shanty tunes! It was a gloriously warm and sunny day, perfect for all of the wild pirate antics and friendly camaraderie, a great time was had by all. Thank you Outer Banks Rotary for the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of so many families. See you next year!
