Oyster roast in Florence to benefit 3 charities

April 18, 2019

FLORENCE, S.C. – The Greater Florence Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Florence class will hold an oyster roast Thursday night at the Florence Center.

Proceeds from “Poppin Shells for A Good Cause,” raised from sponsorships, ticket sales and a silent auction, will go toward three area charities: Harvest Hope Food Bank, Empowered to Heal and Mercy Medicine.

The event will go from 6 to 9 p.m. and will feature live music, heavy hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar in addition to the silent auction.

Tickets cost $30 per person or $50 per couple and are available at flochamber.com or by calling the chamber offices at 843-665-0515.

Leadership Florence is a comprehensive, nine-month experience that identifies, cultivates and motivates new and existing leadership in the Florence area.

When the chamber and leaders of the 37-member Leadership Florence Class of 2019 present checks next month to the local charities, donations also will be presented to the Junior Leadership Florence County program to fund a scholarship for the 2019-2020 Leadership Florence program.
