The first of two planned public sensing sessions held by the firm is slated for the evening of 7/29 at a location to be determined.
VBCC hosted the Annual Tidewater Hokie Club Football Kick-off Dinner July 17, a very hot and humid day. The committee planned the evening well including a greeting by the official mascot.
As luck would have it, a front moved through late in the afternoon with high winds and heavy rain. Spectators both inside and out, saw the Hokie take flight. They saw him head east and suspected he was headed to the beach to cool down. Once the rain ended the search began both from VBCC’s rooftop camera and on foot, but the Hokie was nowhere to be found.
Later in the evening, Justin Roberts, HVAC Tech and Bill Day, Carpenter II, on a routine check of the mechanical systems on the roof, located the deflated Hokie.
He was later returned to his owners.
Rumors are a similar incident happened January 15, 2019 when the Virginia Cavaliers basketball team came to Cassell Coliseum…
Check out the new creative for our mid-summer digital campaign! This campaign was concepted and designed in-house by the MarComm team. Enjoy!
The VBCC had the privilege of hosting tours for 300 kids total over three days the past two weeks. The kids were from summer camps sponsored by From One Hand To AnOTHER, a foundation founded by Pharrell Williams because he believed that every child could be a success if only they had the right tools. They provide over 1,700 children across the U.S. with summer camps focused on S.T.E.A.M.M. Serving predominantly at-risk and low-income elementary and middle school students, FOHTA’s Summer of Innovation camps integrate project-based learning and mentorship across all of their curricula – all while being 100% free of charge for the families.
