Popular oyster roast raises funds for HBF

in Uncategorized by

A traditional oyster roast at a historic plantation on the banks of Chowan Creek will be held by Historic Beaufort Foundation on Friday, January 18 as a fundraiser for its preservation activities. The public is invited to the 1855 Oaks Plantation to enjoy local bounty.
The annual oyster roast exemplifies the best in outdoor Lowcountry experiences — great food and beverages around open fires, the music of the Bull Grapes all against the backdrop of the marshes and creek. The site at 66 Godley Road on St. Helena Island was the first home to Union organizers of the Port Royal Experiment which brought education and training to Beaufort County’s freed slaves which would later become the Penn School.
Reeves Outdoor Catering will serve oysters, pulled pork, barbecue chicken, red rice, salad, dessert in two separate servings at 4:30 p.m. or 7 p.m. Two bar drinks will be included with additional drink tickets available at a cash bar.
Tickets are $45 per person for members, $55 for non-members. Space is limited and shuttles will be provided from adjacent parking. Reservations for 4:30 or 7 p.m. may be made by calling HBF at 379-3331 or by ordering online at www.historicbeaufort.org/shop.
