Record Crowd Parties at 17th Annual Oyster Roast
Almost 1,000 Land Trust supporters feasted on oysters, low country boil, and signature dishes and desserts from dozens of local chefs at the 17th Annual Oyster Roast on January 14.
The weather was an ideal 60-something degrees, with a gentle breeze wafting through the majestic live oaks on Gascoigne Bluff. Music from the local alt-country and rock band, Suzy and the Bird Dogs, made the event positively festive.
The Land Trust sold some 860 tickets, and volunteers pushed the attendance count to well over 900 -- more than 200 people more than last year -- making this the largest Oyster Roast the Land Trust has ever hosted.
Many thanks to the sponsors of the Oyster Roast (listed below) and to the many volunteers, including event chair Judie Mattie. We couldn't have done it without you!
