in Uncategorized by

The Exchange Club of Beaufort will host its 27th Annual Auction and Party on Saturday, November 15, at The Shed at 809 Paris Avenue, Port Royal. The year’s theme will be “Rolling Out the Red Carpet.” Dress as a Hollywood star or as an excited fan to walk the red carpet in support of the Child Abuse Prevention Association (CAPA). During its 26-year history, the auction has helped raise more than $640,000 for CAPA.

CAPA’s Open Arms Shelter for Abused and Neglected Children accepts placements from Beaufort, Jasper, Hampton, Allendale and Colleton counties. The shelter provides a safe haven and emotional support to children in their greatest hours of need.  CAPA also offers outreach programs at low or no cost to the community. These programs include character building classes for children and youth, parenting classes and support groups, and teen pregnancy prevention education. Local teachers, youth workers and others who come in contact with children through their line of work receive training from CAPA on how to identify and report abuse.

This event boasts more than 250 donated items for live, silent and online auctions. Items include handcrafted furniture, original oils and watercolors painted by local artists, and jewelry.  There are also  accommodation packages in many local and out-of-town resorts, golf outings, restaurant gift certificates, professional services for home, cars and pets, fitness memberships, visits to local shops, spas.
