Toadfish Conservation Coalition Hosted First Fundraiser & Donated $20,000 to Create a One-Acre Oyster Reef
In an effort to restore oyster habitats and ultimately cleaner waters, TCC hosted a fundraiser in October, 2019 called: Shellabration, a Lowcountry-style fundraiser sponsored by Bowen’s Island Restaurant featuring food, wine, and auction items, and raised $20,000 to fund a 1 acre oyster reef in collabortation with SCDNR's SCORE program. The reef will built in the Charleston Harbor - an area with some of the poorest water quality in the state.
Local Charleston businesses that joined us for this cause included Lowcountry Oyster Co., Barrier Island Oyster Co., and Charleston Oyster Farm served native, sustainably grown oysters on the half shell. Top chefs from 167 Raw, Herd Provisions, and Farmstead Co. set up stations serving signature dishes, along with wine and beer stations from Oysterman, Post Parade Wines, and Island Coastal Lager. Treats and baked goods were provided by Sugar Bakeshop.
Tickets for this event included: food stations & beverages, silent auction items, raffles, give-aways and live music. Check back for upcoming events.
