2017 Deck Party

Rain? What rain? With almost 300 folks registered, not even cruddy weather could put a damper on the annual TMBA Deck Party at Chick's Oyster Bar in Virginia Beach on May 11. Fueled by oysters, shrimp, barbecue and Chick's signature Orange Crushes, attendees partied the night away in casual business fellowship. Thanks to C&F Mortgage, Essent Guaranty, George Mason Mortgage, Priority Title & Escrow, Southern Trust Mortgage, TowneBank and Wells Fargo Home Mortgage for the event sponsorship! And thanks to all for coming out!
