2019 Annual Gala

2019 "Growing the Green" Gala

Friends of the Seabrook Island Green Space Conservancy eagerly met at the Island House for an evening of casino games, music, silent and live auctions, delicious food and great drinks, plus really awesome prizes on Sunday evening, March 17th. The Seabrook Island Club, yet again, generously hosted the annual event and kudos go to their hardworking and extremely capable staff and management team. They provided incredible food stations and delectable Irish sweets tables, guided by our Chef De Cuisine, Randy. Seabrook Island Real Estate once more helped make the whole evening possible by providing all the adult beverages at the four bars and the minis at all the dessert tables.

Auctioneer Scott Clark, our very own Seabrooker and award-winning sportscaster for WABC News in New York City, set a terrific tone for the live auction as he auctioned off “Pieces of the Green” at a rapid-fire rate as well as our eight breathtaking live auction items. Thank you, Scott, for your humor, expertise, and willingness to serve as our auctioneer extraordinaire.
