The annual Croquet Picnic fundraiser to benefit AMIkids — from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 10, on Bray’s Island — is both beautiful and fun. Plus there is a special “Captain’s Party” event for supporters at Brantley Harvey’s historic Marshlands downtown on Friday, May 9. The entry fee for teams is $400, and teams can range from four to more than eight members. Co-chairs Mike Ingram and Dr. Mike Harris ask for a $50 spectator fee made out to AMIkids Beaufort (tax-deductible) for the croquet picnic. They also encourage people with teams to invite others to join for the picnic side (good food, good drinks) side of things. For more information, to offer silent auction items or to sign up a croquet team, call Dr. Mike Harris at 843-524-1762 or Mike Ingram at 843-846-3149.
