Twilight Transparency

We are excited to once again be a corporate sponsor for this year's Twilight Festival in historic downtown Roanoke Rapids on September 24 presented by the nonprofit Hope for Hardy.

There will be live music, crafts, food, and more. Hope for Hardy is a local organization that promotes organ donation and helps those in need of a transplant.
