A recent past weekend provided the perfect day for the traditional Oyster Roast and 5K Run to benefit Beaufort Charities. This organization is a 501 C (3) governed by a seven member board of directors, and is its 41st year. To-date, they have raised over $1,100,000 which has been distributed to more than a dozen local need organizations in Beaufort County. The Oyster Roast is a celebration of a Lowcountry staple being enjoyed with nothing more than a bucket and a beer and the requisite knife.
