Morris Center Second Annual Gala Celebrates Homegrown Heroes Exhibit

(Ridgeland, SC) — The Morris Center for Lowcountry Heritage will host its second annual Dine, Dance and Discovery Gala on September 22, 2017 at Hilton Head Lakes Clubhouse in Hardeeville from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. This year’s theme will tie in with the center’s current exhibit, Homegrown Heroes: The Lowcountry in World War II.

The event will feature a cocktail hour, four-course dinner, drinks, a silent auction and big band music featuring the Bobby Ryder Quartet. There will be a presentation by author and Pulitzer Prize finalist James M. Scott on World War II history followed by an exclusive book signing. Guests are encouraged to dress in World War II-era clothing.

“The community was such a great support to us last year with our first fundraising event. We are even more excited about this year’s Discovery Gala and hope everyone will come ready to jitterbug and immerse themselves in nostalgia,” says the museum’s Director of Programs, Annmarie Reiley-Kay.

Tickets are available for $125, with an early bird special of $25 off if purchased before August 22. Museum members will receive an additional 15% off their total ticket price. Proceeds from this event will benefit the Morris Center for Lowcountry Heritage.

The Homegrown Heroes exhibit opened on April 1, 2017 and focuses on how the Lowcountry was impacted by and contributed to WWII. One highlight of the exhibit is the wall of stories of local veterans. The exhibit runs through January 2018.
