You are invited to our “Shellabration”!
October 9, 2020 - October 17, 2020
We look forward to our Oyster Roast every year, getting to see all of you and your families, listening to our own island band Edisto Gumbo and eating the best oysters around, thanks to Jamie Westendorff. But, we have determined that just isn’t possible this year, so we have canceled the in-person event. However, funds from this annual fundraiser are still needed to enable Edisto Island Open Land Trust to continue our efforts to preserve and protect this place we love.
This is where you can make a difference. We ask you to consider ’shelling out’ by making a donation to our virtual ’Shellabration’ campaign.
Your contribution in any amount will help more than you know. Please use the enclosed envelope and be a part of the effort to ensure we can keep Edisto . . . Edisto! In addition, knowing that there are families on Edisto who are food insecure during these difficult times, we will donate a portion of the proceeds to the Edisto Island Food Pantry.
And just wait until you hear what we have in store for you! We have three awesome prize packages that you could win. All you have to do to be entered automatically into the drawing is to make a donation in lieu of tickets. Please visit www.shellabration.givesmart.com or visit edisto.org to make your donation online. You can also mail your check using the enclosed envelope, and you will be included in the drawing.
Don’t miss your chance at another special drawing for all who send us a photo of you and your cluster (pun intended!) of friends and family enjoying your first oysters of the season. We will give away an oyster bucket filled with fantastic and amazing EIOLT swag! On Instagram, post your photos, tag us @edistoislandopenlandtrust and use #edistoshellabration. On Facebook, we’ll put up a post and you can post photos in the comments or send them to us in a private message. Not on social media? Email pictures to email@example.com and we’ll add them to the bucket.
On Saturday, October 17 at 5 PM, the campaign will end with a virtual annual meeting to update you on all our 2020 activity and we will draw live for all the great packages (you don’t have to be present to win).
We appreciate your support!
