The Sandbridge Beach Business Association strives to provide a business forum to develop common goals and engage in cooperative strategies to guide the evolution of the Sandbridge area as it meets future challenges.
Sandbridge for Everyone Campaign
The Sandbridge Beach Business Association sponsors the Sandbridge for Everyone campaign. Sandbridge for Everyone was created by the SBBA to ensure Virginia Beach adopts & enforces reasonable regulations to maintain a peaceful environment while not threatening the viability of the rental market that is a hallmark of the community.
Trash & Recycling Project
One of the first initiatives of the Sandbridge Beach Business Association was the public trash & recycling project. Working with the City of Virginia Beach, SBBA members purchased and placed new city-approved trash and recycle containers at beach access points. A plaque on each container names the sponsoring SBBA member.
This infrastructure project also included working with the city to schedule trash and recycle collections. A crew of SBBA members completed the assembly of supports for each trash can. The containers were then placed at each access point on Sandbridge Beach and the city is now servicing for both trash and recycling.
Sponsored by the Sandbridge Beach Civic League, in both the spring and fall members and friends volunteer to help clean up Sandbridge Beach. Members of the Sandbridge Beach Business Association join this event in appreciation of beautifying our community.
Fall clean up this year will be held on November 1st. Meet us at Little Island Park at 1:00 PM if you would like to join us.
The objective of the Sandbridge Beach Business Association is to improve the quality of life and enhance opportunities for all Sandbridge residents and visitors by encouraging a lively and healthy social, cultural, and economic environment.
SBBA & Pig Pickin
The association, as a way to enhance the Sandbridge Beach Pig Pickin, the largest single fundraiser for the Sandbridge Beach Fire & Rescue Squad, began offering wine to attendees beginning in 2013. This offering has been a welcome addition and is our way of helping with this extremely successful fundraiser. In the past the SBBA poured out over 15 cases of red and white wine to happy party goers. In addition, this year we will be giving out our 2016 calendar for donations which will be a financial contribution to this great community event.
SBBA & Oktoberfest
Each October, the Sandbridge Beach Civic League sponsors Oktoberfest as a benefit to all civic league members. The SBBA is the proud sponsor of the desserts for this event.
The event, which is free to civic league members, is a huge success that brings the community together in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. This year, Oktoberfest will be held at the Baja Restaurant on October 4 from 1:00 – 5:00.
Since its inception the SBBA has been providing a $500.00 scholarship to a deserving Sandbridge youth to help with first year college expenses. The Sandbridge Beach Civic League has and continues to be the administrator of the scholarship. As an organization we are proud to assist in helping the young students that live in Sandbridge with their continued education.
This year’s recipient is Jack Mitchell who will be attending Tidewater Community College in the fall.
