The Lowcountry Jaycees announce an inaugural Party in the Park Oyster Roast and Chili Cook-Off. The event will be held November 8, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the field at Beaufort Town Center and will benefit two local charities: Camp Hope and Second Helpings. Tickets are $25 and will include all-you-can-eat oysters and participation in the chili judging. The Jaycees will have door prizes and a silent auction. To purchase tickets for the door prizes, bring canned goods to donate to Second Helpings — each can buys one ticket. Purchase tickets to the event at www.lowcountryjaycees.com.
Camp Hope is a statewide residential camp in South Carolina for intellectually challenged individuals from ages 7 and up, including adults. The camp has a fully trained counselor and medical staff that allows family peace of mind when they drop their loved ones off to camp. Campers get to spend a week at camp, experiencing all camp activities.
Second Helpings’ mission is to collect and thereby rescue nutritious surplus foods that would otherwise have been wasted from restaurants, resorts, caterers and supermarkets. Volunteers deliver this food, in a safe and healthful manner, to agencies serving the disadvantaged.
The Jaycees would like to thank current Party in the Park sponsors: 303 Associates, Butler Chrysler Dodge Jeep, New South Shirts, Marek Realty Group, Lather Construction, The Savvy Apple Preschool and Ray’s Collision Center. For more information about sponsoring the event, donating items for the raffle or silent auction, or to participate in the Chili Cook-Off, please visit www.lowcountryjaycees.com or contact Melanie Ott at email@example.com.
For over 90 years, the South Carolina Junior Chamber of Commerce, more commonly known as the SC Jaycees, has provided young professionals with the tools to succeed in the area of business development, management skills, individual training and community service. The tradition continues with the Beaufort chapter, the Lowcountry Jaycees. In partnership with the Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Town of Port Royal, the Lowcountry Jaycees’ goal is to create a better community by providing personal growth, leadership development and community involvement opportunities for men and women between the ages of 21 and 40.
The Lowcountry Jaycees meet at 6 p.m. on the fourth Thursday of each month at Port Royal Town Hall, 700 Paris Avenue.
