Thursday night was the 2006 Circle of Light Gala at Marion Square. The annual event benefits the Darkness to Light foundation, which works to prevent child sexual abuse. Featured were chefs from restaurants all over Charleston who donated their time, as well as an auction of donated trips and entertainment packages. MTV Chi VJ Greg Wu hosted the Asian-themed event, which finally wrapped up after midnight as people reluctantly left the dancefloor.
Fans gathered at Cumberland’s Friday night to see visiting country-punk acts Lucero and Drag the River. The venue was unusually packed early, at 10 p.m., and the bands continued to keep the crowd coming in all night.
Saturday night was the 14th Annual Oyster Roast benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation at the Visitor’s Center Bus Shed. The event was hosted by The Charitable Society of Charleston , which is made up of young professionals in the Charleston area. The proceeds will be used to grant the wish of one of the Charleston area children who are on the waiting list for the foundation.
The Hospice of Charleston hosted its 18th annual Candlelight Memorial Ceremony at Colonial Lake on Sunday evening. The event is a memorial service for those who would like to remember someone they have lost this holiday season. Luminaries circled the lake, each labeled with the name of a lost family member or friend.
