Thanks to the generosity of the Seabrook Island Conservancy supporters at the 2017 Green Space Gala, the trend for Seabrook Island continues to be GREEN.
The lucky 300 reservation holders for the annual sold out event arrived with open wallets to show their love of our special environment and to help preserve green spaces in perpetuity.
A hardworking band of volunteers led by Conservancy president and gala chairperson Jeri Finke created an atmosphere of fun and indulgence for attendees at the March 12th event.The Charleston community outdid itself by contributing a vast array of items which created enthusiastic silent and live auction bidding. Plus the “Pick a Leaf” grab bags filled with donations were actually quickly grabbed up.
Auctioneer Dave Mathews kept the fun going with the ever popular Heads or Tails game. (See picture) The kind finalists banded together and agreed to donate the second half of the over $4000 pot back to the Conservancy.
Our accounting duo of Bob Adamson and Bob Norris continue to compute the exact dollar amount raised but declared it the most successful gala in the Conservancy’s history. The hope is that the funds will allow the purchase of the Conservancy’s 24th property to maintain Seabrook Island’s trend toward Green!
