Croquet tournament fundraiser was a success

The 22nd Annual AMIkids Beaufort Croquet Tournament and Picnic held May 11 was a great success, raising more than $63,000. Special thanks to Brays Island Plantation for hosting the event once again. AMIkids also thanks tournament sponsors, teams, area businesses, as well as individual donors within the community and those who chose to sponsor the welding program. This year’s Grand Marshal was Margaret Barber.

Additionally, Board Member Brantley Harvey Jr. hosted a captain’s cocktail reception at his historic home, Marshlands.

Croquet Tournament results: 1st Place, Harvey & Battey; tied for second place, Beaufort Shag Club and Power Rangers. Best Dressed Lady was Lady Ann Mclaughlin and Best Dressed Man was Wayne Blau. This year’s Bullseye competition went to Simon Jenkins, and the award for Best Picnic went to the “My Carolina” of Dataw Island.

AMIkids Beaufort is a nonprofit residential facility located in Lobeco that is an alternative to prison for juvenile offenders ages 14-17. Since its inception, three-fourths of  AMIkids’ graduates don’t get into any more trouble with the law.
