Paws at the Plantation to be held at the South Forty


Sarah Miller, Co-VP and Public Relations Coordinator for FoCCAS at last year’s event which pulled in over $11,000 for Colleton County animals.

Paws at the Plantation “Sold Out” early last year, leaving folks left out for the fun event. “Paws at the Plantation” has historically been one of the best annual fundraisers in Colleton County since it started eight years ago and this year will be no exception. For the reasonable ticket price of $50, or $40 if purchased before February 28, not only will you get to visit the coolest new venue in Colleton County but event-goers will also enjoy a silent auction, live entertainment, dinner by Jimmy Fitts and fellowship with other animal lovers. This is a great opportunity for those that always want to help Friends of the Colleton County Animal Shelter but don’t know-how.
The South Forty is Colleton County’s newest venue that folks are raving about. It is located in Round O at 665 Benjamin Drive. The event will take place outside, but there is a rain plan if the weather decides not to cooperate. Sparkles Event Decor & Design will be decorating the outdoor space for everyone to enjoy.
Dinner will surely be a hit as Jimmy Fitts will be serving up his famous barbeque and fried chicken topped off with all your favorite sides. Beer and wine are also included in the ticket price. The “Going to the Dogs Band” of Cottageville will be providing the music for entertainment. They are a local act that supports Friends of the Colleton County Animal Shelter by passing along any money they make to the nonprofit organization.
A new twist this year is folks can participate in a little pre-auction bidding. The pre-auction bidding is taking place on the Facebook page belonging to Friends of the Colleton County Animal Shelter. Bids will be taken on items posted for folks that might not make it to the event to place a bid in person. However, you run the risk that someone may outbid you on March 7 at the event, which takes place from 5 pm- 9 pm. The silent auction is sure to be a hit as always as well as the live auction. This year some of the items that are up for grabs are a mountain getaway, golf packages to several different courses, a signed guitar, and an oyster table.
The event is getting close to once again selling out, so make sure to purchase your tickets early. Tickets can be purchased at www.foccas-sc.org, Treasure Chest Gold, Island Tan, Audra at Palmetto Hair Gallery, Sarah Miller, Christie Slocum, Billy Clark, or any FoCCAS board member. No tickets will be sold at the door.
