The Lavon Stevens Band will take the stage to benefit Heroes of the Lowcountry at the nonprofit group’s annual dinner-dance gala Oct. 26. Attendees will enjoy a Lowcountry dinner prepared on site by local chef George Washington as well as dancing, a silent auction and a raffle.
The gala will be held from 6-10 p.m. at the Boys & Girls Club of Hilton Head Island, 151 Gumtree Road, Hilton Head Island.
Heroes of the Lowcountry is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization founded in 2012 at Bluffton’s Campbell Chapel AME Church that awards scholarships to deserving students from Beaufort and Jasper counties who might not attend college without the help of a caring local organization. This year, it has awarded $26,000 in financial aid to 47 students. Recipients who maintain good standing in college receive an increased stipend each year until graduation; the organization also provides mentoring to recipients.
Tickets to the fundraiser gala are available by calling Pat Dowey at 913-707-1078 or by going to www. www.heroesofthelowcountry.com.
