From staff reports

A Lowcountry boil featuring live music at the Community Beer Garden at The Sands in Port Royal is being held to support a local nonprofit that provides free legal representation to those in need.

Lowcountry Legal Volunteers will host the Lowcountry boil from 5 to 8 p.m., Saturday.

Tickets are $50 and include all-you-can eat Lowcountry boil catered by Sea Eagle Market and live music provided by The Cluster Shucks, a Beaufort-based bluegrass-rock band comprised of Jason Ward, Ben Coppage and Worth Liipfert.

“Fun events like the Lowcountry boil in a beautiful setting helps support our mission to ensure that no resident of Beaufort, Jasper or Hampton county is denied the right to equal justice because of their income,” Lowcountry Legal Volunteers Executive Director and attorney Anne Caywood said in a release.

In 2020, Lowcountry Legal Volunteers provided more than 1,600 hours of volunteer hours, held two free legal clinics and closed out 124 cases in civil and family courts.

Lowcountry Legal Volunteers assists with adoptions, child custody, visitation, guardianships, divorce, name changes, simple consumer matters, eviction actions, lease termination, non-refund of security deposits, simple wills and probate.

They are located at 108 Traders Cross in Okatie. To learn more about Lowcountry Legal Volunteers or to buy a ticket, visit lowcountrylegalvolunteers.org. Sponsorships for the Lowcountry boil are still available by calling 843-815-1570 or by emailing Beverly Bauman at beverly@lclv.org.
