The Summerville, South Carolina location of The Lighthouse for the Blind, Inc. held its first major fundraiser on Friday, January 26th at the Summerville Country Club and it was a HUGE success! The cool weather was perfect for over 125 members of the community to kick off their weekend by shucking unlimited steamed oysters, enjoying beer and wine, and dancing to music by Charleston’s own Plane Jane band. Guests were able to warm themselves up by relaxing at fire pits while also testing their skill at playing corn hole.

Thank you to our Champion Sponsor, The Boeing Company, and our Community Sponsor, MC Dirt Company LLC for helping make our Oyster Roast a success!

We would also like to thank our in-kind sponsors who were featured in our raffle:

Crust Wood Fired Pizza

Coastal Coffee Roasters

Accent on Wine

The Inn at Middleton Place

The Griffon

South Carolina Aquarium

Riverbanks Zoo and Garden

Red Lion Hotels

Disney World

With the support of the Lowcountry community, we raised over $10,000 toward the creation of opportunities for jobs, independence, and empowerment for people who are blind in South Carolina.

We hope that you will make plans to shuck it, and party with us next year at our second annual oyster roast!
