Port City Rip The Runway

  • 502 North Front Street Wilmington, NC, 28401 United States (map)

This annual event is a part of the "Bigg B Birthday Weekend". He celebrates his birthday by honoring his mother's legacy. His mom was an educator in North Carolina for 40 years and even beyond retirement. 

His mom suddenly passed away after a surgical procedure in 2011 and this event combined her passion for educating the youth and her love for fashion. 

Big B's genuine love for his community is why hundreds come out annually to this event. Some travel near and far to attend this great event. 

Bigg B and his wife Suprena have been able to unite the community by choosing more local designers, make up artists, hair stylists and barbers, and even national clothing companies. 

They have selected from regular citizens of Wilmington and surrounding areas to political figures including the Sheriff, Police Chief, and State Senator- just to name a few.

They have sent four kids so far to college and have one who has graduated from college so far. They continue to show that better is possible and this is why they continue to do better each year.
