The Historic Beaufort Foundation is putting on their 10th annual oyster roast on Friday, January 29th.
Come out and not only will you get to eat some great Lowcountry oysters, but you’ll get to support a great cause while learning more about the history of Beaufort.
Here’s all you need to know from the e-mailed release:

Open to HBF members and the general public, the event kicks off the Foundation’s annual membership campaign. Guests, who have never before been members, receive a one-year complimentary membership with the price of the ticket.
2010 marks the third year that Tombee has been opened to HBF and its guests by owners Deborah and Sydney Snelgrove who, with local craftsman Beek Webb, conducted a major restoration to the property in 2008. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the ca. 1810 plantation and its grounds will be open to ticket holders.
Tickets are $40 per person and a few reservations are still available for the 5:30 p.m. servings of oysters, chicken gumbo, corn bread, beverages and dessert. More space is available at the 7 p.m. serving. The grounds and the bonfires will be open to guests throughout the evening. The bar opens at 5 p.m.
Tickets will not be sold at the door and must be purchased by January 26th at the HBF office at 208 Street, or ordered and charged to a credit card by calling the office at 379-3331 or online at www.historicbeaufort.org. The office is open Monday – Friday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
The oyster roast will be catered by Reeves Outdoor Catering of Bluffton. Beek Webb and the Lowcountry Ramblers will provide music.
