‘Sunset and Tapas’ for Habitat Fundraiser

2 mins read

Cat Island  and Royal Pines are the newest neighborhoods to graciously take on raising funds for a $50,000 house sponsorship for Habitat for Humanity. This has been achieved in past years by Habersham, Dataw Island, Fripp/Harbor islands, and Spring Island. Members of the committee that came up with this very successful event last weekend at the Beaufort Yacht & Sailing Club on Lady’s Island were Peg Schlictmeier, Rae Dehncke, Nancy Gilley, Nancy Myers, Susie Gombocz, Maryjo Demko, Pat Nestor, Bernie DiPasquale and Ilene Hull. Kudos to all of you and to those who attended; the event raised nearly twice the amount of money than originally expected! All the proceeds from the auction will benefit the build sponsorship, and go directly into funding construction costs to put a roof over a very deserving family.  Special thanks to John Davenport, who offered a cruise for 12 in the silent auction to the South Carolina Yacht Club on Hilton Head Island on his yacht, and also to Amanda Brewer for providing entertainment. Here are some pics for you from the fun event:
