One of the great joys of being a AV Company Charleston SC is that we get to sponsor some great events throughout the year. One of our favorites is the Ducks Unlimited Oyster Roast. Every year this event coincides with the week long Southeastern Wildlife Exposition held at various locations around downtown Charleston, South Carolina. Always held on Valentine’s weekend, SEWE (“seewee” as it is lovingly called in Charleston, not to be confused with SeeWee which is an actual place in South Carolina just up the road in Awendaw) brings visitors from around the nation.
SEWE’s focus is on sporting concerns: Hunting, fishing, falconry and the like. Ducks Unlimited is a a conservationist non-profit organization which seeks to maintain duck populations and their habitats among other causes. Ducks Unlimited hosts many events throughout the year around the nation but we like to think their visit to Charleston is the best part of their year. It’s certainly one of our favorite events for which we provide AV, lighting, and staging for the Oyster Roast and Auction. this event is held at the Charleston Bus Shed. And while it may not sound gala-fancy, there is a seeming cast of thousands on hand to turn a bus shed into a great party each year. And every year all of our combined teams get it done and create a fabulous evening for fundraising.
If you have not yet had the chance to attend the Ducks Unlimited Oyster Roast, now is the time to get it on your 2016 calendar. Dress in layers, if it is anything like this year, it can be a cold one.
