Beaufort Academy plans 50th birthday blowout!

in Uncategorized by

Turning 50 is no small accomplishment and means many different things for many different people… for some, it’s a reason to buy a new car (BA recently purchased a new bus), for others it’s a reason to get a new look (BA has a new Headmaster), and for others it’s time for a huge party… and that’s exactly what Beaufort Academy is planning!

In Beaufort, folks know how to have a good time! Whether it’s a Friday night downtown, a Saturday on the river, or an afternoon on the porch relaxing with friends, our community appreciates good people, good food, and a good time. On Saturday, May 2nd, all three will come together as Beaufort Academy celebrates its 50th Birthday Party… The Big Five-O!

As this landmark year comes to a close, it’s time to blow out the candles on the cake. BA’s Big Five-0 Birthday Bash is the grand finale that is a Party 50 Years in the Making! A party of this magnitude is no small feat. The committee organizing The Big Five-O, led by Chairwoman Katie Huebel of WED, knows it has to be exceptional. They have been planning since last fall for a birthday bash like no other birthday bash! The event will feature cuisine prepared by Cru Café of Charleston, the rocking Mike Veal Band from Atlanta, an amazing auction and lots of birthday surprises. Tickets are $75 in advance and $85 at the door, and include beer and wine (liquor will be available for purchase). Former BA faculty and staff please call 843-524-3393 for special pricing!

And of course, you can’t turn 50 and not celebrate with all of your friends and family! BA has a separate committee working on bringing back alumni and faculty with whom they’ve lost touch, and of course they are inviting everyone from their history who has helped to make BA what it is today. On top of that, BA hopes the community will join them to celebrate this special event in Beaufort’s history.

Why would someone who has never gone to school at BA come to this party? Not only will it be the 50th birthday party to top all 50th birthday parties, but it’s a way for BA to honor and celebrate the entire Beaufort community who has supported the school the past 50 years.

Prior to blowing out the candles on May 2nd, BA will also be inducting the first Athletic Hall of Fame recipients at a special assembly at the Beaufort Academy gym on May 1st, at 2:15 p.m. Please plan to come and see the induction of BA alumni athletes and coaches!

There is no charge the attend the Hall of Fame assembly, and tickets for the Big Five-O Birthday Bash can be found at the school’s website, www.beaufortacademy.org, or by contacting Emma Roddey at 843-524-3393 or eroddey@beaufortacademy.org. Don’t miss the opportunity to become a part of this historic milestone!
