Community Involvement

Community Involvement

As a locally owned Hampton Roads business, Great Atlantic Hot Tubs, Pools & Saunas is committed to supporting the communities in which we operate. That’s why you’ll find our owners Rich and Eileen Werber and the Great Atlantic team involved in a number of local organizations – from leadership roles in civic and community organizations to our sponsorship of local organizations.

Rich Werber’s involvement in the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce included serving as the Chairman of the Board of Leadership Hampton Roads. He was named the “Outstanding Volunteer of the Year” by the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce for his tenure as treasurer of the organization. And, as a board member of the Future of Hampton Roads organization, Rich has supported their many activities over the years.

In 1999, Eileen was one of three women who established the local Tidewater Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Initially, she managed the Affiliate with Great Atlantic's resources to support the organization’s efforts to increase awareness of breast cancer as a life threatening disease. In addition to other honors, in 2008 Eileen was awarded the “Pink Ribbon Lifetime Volunteer Award” in recognition of her contributions to the Affiliate. With the Affiliate’s growth and success came its own office and staff. And, while Eileen no longer manages the Affiliate, she, Rich and the Great Atlantic team continue to support the organization.

Over the years Great Atlantic has also been proud to sponsor a number of local programs and events, including the Old Dominion University Men and Women’s Basketball teams, the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program, the Town Center Kiwanis Charity Golf Tournament and the Komen Tidewater Race for the Cure®. Finally, with both owners having been military dependents, Great Atlantic has looked for ways to support the military community in Hampton Roads. That includes special offers for our military, our military spa care deployment program and our most recent partnership with the Navy and Coast Guard exchanges. Special Offers for our Military So, what does all of this mean to you, our customer? When you do business with Great Atlantic, you can be assured that you are doing business with a company whose owners have a long standing vested interest in and a commitment to our community.
