On Saturday, May 19 from 3:00 to 6:00 pm, the Green at Freshfields Village will be the site of the Fourth Annual Gullah Celebration to support the Sea Islands Hunger Awareness Foundation (SIHAF). The festivities will be held under the largest tent ever erected on the green, so please come, rain or shine!

This fun and fundraising event features music, a silent auction with over 250 items, craft vendors, and a children’s art show. Gullah cuisine as well as beer, wine and iced tea will be available for purchase. Live musical performances by Deninufay African Dance and Drum Production at 3:15 pm and The Lowcountry Voices at 4:30 pm will be among the highlights of the afternoon.

General admission is $15 in advance and $20 at the door.  Children 12 and under are free. Tickets are available through the SIHAF website,  www.FightIslandHunger.org, as well as at Indigo Books. Food and drink tickets can also be purchased in advance or at the event.

The Gullah Celebration is the major source of funding for the Sea Islands Hunger Awareness Foundation, whose mission is to fight hunger by providing healthy food and clean water to needy families from Johns and Wadmalaw Islands. Many of the programs that SIHAF supports are familiar to Seabrook residents who participate in them as volunteers. They include the Blessing Basket, the Water Wellness Mission, Crockpot Cooking Class, Backpack Buddies of Seabrook, Fields to Families, the Hebron Zion Presbyterian Church Emergency Food Bank, Meals on Wheels of Charleston, Rockville Presbyterian Church Meals on Monday, Sweetgrass Garden and the Wesley United Methodist Temple Take Out Ministry.
