The Red Carpet Committee and team of Red Carpet Hosts are ready to show potential newcomers that Kinston, NC and Lenoir County is a great place to call home. Whether they are looking for city or country living, we are ready to impress them with all the amazing amenities that Kinston, NC and Lenoir County have to offer with a dose of Southern Hospitality! The Kinston-Lenoir County Chamber of Commerce and the Business and Tourism Committee members want to help welcome people that are considering moving to our community. We are here to help sell our community! The Red Carpet Committee is ready to share the love we have for this community with potential newcomers. Why wouldn’t they want to call Kinston, Pink Hill, LaGrange and all points in between HOME!
If you are aware of anyone that would benefit from this program, please let us know. They will be matched up with a host person or family that has similar interests and falls in their age group. The host will not only show them around our community but become a friend that they can call on. The Red Carpet host can also entertain the spouse and any other family members during the interview process.
If you are new to our area or considering a move to Kinston and would like to have a Red Carpet Host, please contact Laura Lee Sylvester at 252-527-1131.
If you live in Kinston and love it as much as we do and would like to be a Red Carpet Host volunteer, contact the chamber.
Red Carpet Goals:
- To match interested newcomers with a Red Carpet Host/Family with similar interests.
- To have the host and newcomer spend time together initially touring around our county and/or having lunch or dinner together.
- To follow up with ongoing contact throughout the next several months in an effort to have them feel welcomed.
- Provide Relocation packages that match their needs.
- Help them get connected with information about all our area schools including preschool resources.
- Let them know that the Chamber’s website has a listing of member Realtors and links to other community websites that may help them.
