We take great pride in not only being a premier group of restaurants including Kelly’s Outer Banks Restaurant and Tavern, Mako Mike’s and Pamlico Jack’s but we are also proud of our involvement and commitment to the local Outer Banks, NC community.
Our support of local Outer Banks charities includes the Kelly Hospitality Group Annual Golf Tournament. In the last 19 years, we have raised over $310,000 for the Outer Banks Community Foundation. We are also the founding sponsor of the Fun Run, a family friendly event held in conjunction with the Outer Banks Marathon each November. Proceeds from the Fun Run benefit the Dare Education Foundation and the Outer Banks Relief Fund.
The Kelly’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade, which has been held for over 23 years, is an event that both locals and visitors alike look forward to each year. There are over 10,000 onlookers and approximately 125 different floats, bands and groups in the parade, the largest St. Patrick’s Day Parade in NC. The Coastal Humane Society uses the Parade as their annual walk-a-thon, their largest fundraiser of the year.
Each of our restaurants is the site of many community events and fundraisers throughout the year. There is always something happening! Come join the fun by checking our events schedule here.
