The Party: Lowcountry Orphan Relief's Night to Remember found guests donning tuxedos and evening gowns for the black-tie affair, LOR’s biggest annual fundraising effort. This year, members of the Emerald Empire band treated guests to smooth jazz as they entered the Gaillard ballroom for cocktails by the Cocktail Bandits and hors d’oeuvres crafted by Gaillard Center chefs. After mingling and perusing the extensive silent auction, emcee/auctioneer duo Tom Crawford and Erin Kienzle led the way to the beautifully decorated dining room for a light dinner and live auction, featuring prizes that included an Irish golf adventure, a getaway at the Biltmore Estate, and more. The event concluded with guests filling the dancefloor to groove to move lively tunes from the Emerald Empire.
Highlight: Local firefighter Adam Craft's heartfelt story of his own experiences in the foster system
Overheard: “This is a night I'll remember, alright!”
