Hop aboard for 12th annual YACHT HOP

Around Town


It’s the talk of the docks. On Sunday, May 1, celebrate the 12th annual Yacht Hop of Hilton Head Island. As Hospice Care of the Lowcountry’s signature fundraiser, partygoers are invited aboard luxurious yachts, where they will be treated to delectable cuisine and musical entertainment.

The event, which has become a Lowcountry favorite, will be from 5:30 to 9 p.m. at the Harbour Town Yacht Basin and promises to be an evening to remember. Mingle with friends, tour private yachts and enjoy drinks and mouth-watering hors d’oeuvres prepared by the area’s most talented chefs.

With live and silent auctions, get your bidding hand ready — it all goes to a great cause. There also will be door prizes and live music.

All proceeds from the evening benefit Hospice Care of the Lowcountry’s hospice and palliative care services. Hospice Care of the Lowcountry was founded in 1982 and is the island’s oldest independent nonprofit hospice.

Giving to Hospice Care of the Lowcountry means providing loved ones with specialized care based on their individual needs. With community support, Hospice Care of the Lowcountry delivers physician-directed programs, palliative care-certified nurses, dedicated staff offering around-the-clock care, counseling, medications, medical supplies, equipment and the most compassionate care on the island. Proceeds also help support special programs for veterans and services including pet therapy, music therapy, aromatherapy and congregation-based outreach.
