Edward Dukes of Lowcountry Real Estate shared the following about their involvement. “We are very pleased to be involved as the honorary chair of Habitat’s 25th Anniversary. Our whole team really believes in the mission of Habitat and it is a natural fit for us. Home ownership is such an important underpinning of a community and Habitat creates these amazing and affordable homes. It is really our pleasure to be involved with this great organization.”

LowCountry Habitat intends to celebrate 25 years of providing hope, homes and community to northern Beaufort County by raising money for a 25th Anniversary Home. The goal is to raise $60,000 towards building this home through a weekend long Silver Anniversary Celebration in September and Habitat is thrilled to be partnering with Lowcountry Real Estate in this endeavor.

John Trask III of Lowcountry Real Estate knows first-hand about the value of contributing to Habitat’s mission. “Several years ago,” Trask shared, “my teenage daughter Isabelle, and I spent a week in El Salvador working on a Habitat for Humanity project. Despite the language barrier, it was tremendously fulfilling work and an endeavor that we know has continued to sow fruit long after we left. I know first-hand how meaningful these homes are.”

Habitat is kicking off this project with the Hard Hats & Hammers Golf Tournament hosted by Dataw Island on May 11th. The fall festivities will begin with a Gala Opening Reception with tastings from Beaufort’s finest restaurants, spirits, silent auction and wonderful entertainment on Thursday, September 17th at The Shed in Port Royal. On Friday, September 18th and Saturday September 19th, we will host a Lowcountry Home & Garden Show with vendors from all aspects of building and gardening. The show will have things to buy and things to learn with food and fun for the entire family. On Friday evening, The Shed will feature a “Honey Do” auction with beer tastings from local breweries. Services from gutters to gardens and decorating to dust removal will be auctioned so you may check them off your “Honey Do” List. Truly this will be a wonderful weekend of celebration with something for everyone to enjoy.
