The Up Center Featured as the 2014 Partner Non-profit
Each year, Hampton Roads Transit (HRT), along with WVEC-TV-13 and BOB-FM radio, work to bring holiday cheer to those most in need in Hampton Roads. For the duration of Holidays in the City (November 22 to December 31, 2014) The Up Center will be featured on two specially-wrapped trains of The Tide and a bus.
The official announcement took place November 19 at a joint press conference in Downtown Norfolk. Hampton Roads Transit President & CEO William Harrell, and The Up Center President & CEO Tina Gill, and Bob Sinclair, Jr. of Sinclair Communications all spoke at the event. WVEC was on hand to cover the conference and interview speakers.
The Holiday Express kicks off Saturday, November 22, the night of the Grand Illumination Parade in Downtown Norfolk.
