A Community United

A Community United

The fundraiser will feature 50 restaurateurs and dozens of beverage purveyors, each of whom is donating all food and beverage to support the effort.

Tickets for the event are $200 per person and 100% of proceeds will be donated directly from the Community United Fund to the nine families whose lives were forever changed that night.  (Organizers have donated 250 tickets to the Emanuel AME church for distribution among members.)

The evening will feature food and beverage from the city’s flagship restaurants, breweries, distillers and distributors. The Mark Sterbank Group and the Lowcountry Voices gospel choir will provide music. The evening will also include a program featuring Charleston and AME church leaders.

To date, organizers have received Grammy Award ticket packages, European fly/stay/train packages, a weekend for two in New York including all-access tickets to the New York Wine Experience and more than 100 works of art. Bidding begins at noon July 3 and concludes at midnight July 9. Bidders register payment information on the website, and can bid on desired items with cell phone numbers, when prompted (or can elect not to do so).
