Annual Oyster Roast Fundraiser
posted by Jessica Koenig on September 16, 2014

Oyster season is upon us and our 8th Annual Oyster Roast Fundraiser is quickly approaching! Mark your calendars for Sunday, November 23rd and join us and enjoy live music, oysters, chili, BBQ, beverages (adult & children) and of course – beautiful views of Charleston Harbor.

We accomplished our fundraising goal for the fleet replacement campaign, however as a nonprofit we still need your support as we continue to raise funds for programs and facility improvements all while working to provide affordable sailing opportunities to ALL! Funds raised for this event will support our STEM Education and Buddy Sail outreach programs by offering scholarships for inner city youth to experience sailing. Our programs stabilize youth and help them realize their hidden talents while conquering their fears and doubts, by using sailing as a vehicle. You can help make a difference!

How can you help?
1. Become an event sponsor
2. Collect items for door prizes/auction
3. Volunteer and help the day of event

Tickets will be available to purchase on October 15. For event information, sponsorship opportunities or to donate items for our raffle please contact us at info@charlestoncommunitysailing.org.
