Chamber to host event for local chiropracter

Seaside Family Chiropractic will celebrate its grand opening from 4-6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 18, at 1211 Newcastle Street, Suite C, Beaufort. 

A ribbon cutting ceremony will take place at 4 p.m.

Seaside Family Chiropractic owner Dr. Valerie Dowis said she enjoyed spending summers as a child in Beaufort making memories with her family at Hunting Island, Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park, and eating treats from The Chocolate Tree. During her last year of chiropractic school, Dowis decided to make Beaufort her home in hopes of starting a practice and begin giving back to the community through chiropractic care.

The event will include a meet and greet with “Dr. V,” light refreshments, balloons for children and door prizes.
