Check Presentation for 3rd Annual Holiday Harvest Gala to Benefit Charleston Area Meals on Wheels

The Lowcountry Senior Network (LSN) hosted their 3rd Annual Holiday Harvest Gala to raise funds to support the Charleston Area Meals on Wheels program. The Event held on November 29th, 2018 at the Cooper River Room at Mt. Pleasant’s Memorial Waterfront Park raised $16,000 to benefit the organization and help fill the void in their waiting list.

This fundraising event was conceived by members of Lowcountry Senior Network – the Lowcountry’s premier networking organization committed to providing quality services to seniors, caregivers, and adult children – as a response to the staggering number of individuals in the area that are on wait lists to receive Meals on Wheels services due to lack of funds. Charleston Area Meals on Wheels, a Charleston Area Senior Citizens (CASC) program, not only provides a nutritious meal, but also a friendly visit and a safety check that helps keep seniors living independently in their own homes from the Cooper River to the Edisto. The money raised by the gala allows the program to reach hundreds more who are currently waiting to receive services.

A pair of tickets to the Holiday Harvest Gala cost $110 and equals the cost to feed one Meals on Wheels client for an entire month. Since the heart of this fundraiser involves food, LSN once again teamed up with the outstanding culinary team from Franke at Seaside who provided an unforgettable menu including Duck Confit Tacos, S.C. Shrimp & Grits, Build Your Own Low Country “BOWL” (with assorted grains, pork belly, scallops, shrimp, chicken, ribeye, house pickles, kimchi, Korean BBQ, etc.) Aged Cheddar Mac & Cheese Bar, Ahi Tuna + Lamb Lollipop, and a Seasonal Soup Bar. There was also live music for singing and dancing by the Michelle Renée Trio. There were also delicious signature cocktails from the open bars, outstanding raffle baskets, and fabulous silent auction items.

Lowcountry Senior Network was honored to collaborate with the following event sponsors: Charleston Area Senior Citizens, All About Seniors, Care for Life, MUSC Center on Aging, Franke at Seaside, BrightStar Care, Stephen Martindale with Mutual of Omaha, Hospice Care of South Carolina, Encompass Health, Mount Pleasant Gardens, Sandpiper Premier Senior Living, First Light Home Care, HouseCalls-MD, NHC Skilled Nursing, and Agape Hospice/SC House Calls.

We invite your organization to attend our presentation to Charleston Area Meals on Wheels on Thursday, February 14th at 8 a.m. at the Charleston Area Senior Citizens Center located at 259 Meeting Street, Charleston, SC 29401
