Awendaw Green Barn Jam

The Awendaw Green Barn Jams are an outdoor, year round Wed night original music showcase that get folks off their couch to enjoy and connect with others and support original music and the artist that make it. It is held in Awendaw, SC, 15 miles North of Charleston under grand oaks by an old barn that evokes the Lowcountry in a uniquely hyper-local bohemian atmosphere on the grounds of the Sewee Outpost.

Try a wood fired pizza, the grill or fresh local oysters in season and drink your own libations responsibly. $5 donation as door, all ages are welcome, pets on a leash and it is always a family friendly occasion.

Golf Tees to House Keys

East Cooper Habitat for Humanity, a non-profit, non-denominational Christian housing organization, will host its fifth annual “Golf Tees to House Keys” benefit golf outing May 13, 2014. The event will give players the opportunity to play the prestigious Daniel Island Club – Beresford Creek Course, while helping to eliminate poverty housing in the area.

“Golf Tees to House Keys” will benefit East Cooper Habitat for Humanity and is an 18-hole shamble format. The entry fee is $225 per player or $850 per team. Sponsorship opportunities are available. Registration begins at 11:00 a.m. Lunch follows at 12:00 p.m., with a shotgun start at 1:00 p.m. A cocktail reception and silent auction will be held at 6:00 p.m. Team prizes will be awarded for low net and low gross. There will also be longest drive, closest to the pin, and putting contests, and a major hole-in-one prize. Entry forms may be downloaded at www.eastcooperhabitat.org, and questions should be directed to Christine Pinson at 843-881-2600 or by email at christine@eastcooperhabitat.org.

East Cooper Habitat for Humanity (ECHFH) assists families by building safe, well constructed homes. Working in partnership with low-income families, ECHFH utilizes volunteer labor and donated funds to provide a “hand up,” not a “hand out,” on the construction of their homes. Homeowners are chosen based on their demonstrated ability to handle personal finances, their need, and their willingness to contribute at least 350 hours of “sweat equity” on their home. Upon completion, Habitat homes are purchased by the homeowner with monthly payments under an interest-free mortgage over 30 years, and those payments are directed toward future homebuilding efforts as received.
