Welcome to the Dare Education Foundation!
We believe Synergy = Student SUCCESS! To that end, our goal is to effectively utilize our community's resources to nurture innovation and continuous improvement in public education. Join us in supporting every student, every teacher and every school in Dare County. Together, we can close the achievement gap and touch the future!
Join us and learn from Glazer's wine & spirits ambassador Tony Ursone. The event includes appetizers and six bourbon tastings. 10% of restaurant sales that day also belong to DEF so eat, drink and mingle with us outside of the bourbon tasting.
