You’ve just got a few more days left to buy tickets to the biggest Charity Event of 2012. The fabulous Valentine Ball to benefit Beaufort Memorial Hospital. That is if you want to go to one of the exclusive pre-ball private dinner parties before hand. It’s a great way to meet new people or reconnect with old friends and half the ticket price is tax deductible! You have until midnight on this Monday the 16th to buy tickets! Simply go to www.valentineball.org to purchase. The dinner parties start at 6:30 p.m. and then guests go to the Lyceum on Parris Island for the Ball. Don’t miss this great opportunity to both have fun and contribute to a great cause!
Speaking of the Valentine Ball, this special just in from Stephanie Fairbanks, Director of Operations at the wonderful City Loft Hotel downtown. Stephanie says, “For the night of the Valentine’s Ball—February 11—I would like to offer a local’s only special rate of $159 including a bottle of Cava, white wine or red wine. Early check in for local’s only. We only have a few rooms left so book now to make sure you get a room at Beaufort’s number one hotel.” Thanks Stephanie!
