Earth Day Celebration at the ReStore
LowCountry Habitat for Humanity ReStore will celebrate Earth Day on Saturday, April 21, with a variety of earth-friendly activities for the whole family.  The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the ReStore, located at 612 Parris Island Gateway in Beaufort.
Great bargains can be found at the Plant Sale featuring beautiful new annuals and perennials and at the Book Sale with lots of wonderful used books.   A Kids Craft Corner will help children learn that it is never too soon to develop a “green” attitude.
The highlight of the day will be a silent auction of Recycled Art created by prominent local artists.  The artists have borrowed ordinary items from the ReStore and re-purposed them into fabulous new creations that will amaze you.  These unique items are currently on display at the ReStore and you are invited to stop by and vote for your favorite piece!  At the same time you may also place a silent auction bid on any of the items.  The winner of the contest will be announced at 1:30 p.m. and silent auction bidding will also close then.
Adding to the fun on Earth Day, live music will be provided by Peter Zamuka.  The Beaufort County Solid Waste and Recycling Agency will also be on hand to provide helpful information to all.
All proceeds from Earth Day will help provide materials to build another LowCountry Habitat for Humanity home with a local family. Contact the ReStore at 843-525-0055 for further information.
