Croquet Tournament fundraiser on Brays Island was a success
The 21st Annual AMIkids Beaufort Croquet Tournament and Picnic this month was a great success, raising more than $55,000. Special thanks to Brays Island Plantation for hosting the event once again. We also thank our tournament sponsors, teams, area businesses, as well as individual donors within our community.
We salute Grand Marshal Pat McGarrity and Board Member Brantley Harvey Jr., who hosted a captain’s cocktail reception at his historic home.
Croquet Tournament results: First Place, Sun City Stars with 56 wickets; tied for second place with 55 wickets were Brays Island Dove and Brays Island Chukar. Best Dressed Lady was Sharon Smith and Best Dressed Man was Scott Abrahamson. This year’s Bullseye competition went to Simon Jenkins.
AMIkids Beaufort is a nonprofit residential facility located in Lobeco that is alternative to prison for juvenile offenders ages 14-17. Since it started, 78 percent of AMIkids Beaufort graduates don’t get into any more trouble with the law. That’s a lot higher than other programs and certainly higher than prison successes.
