The Social Event of the Season – Valentine Ball

The social event of the season was held last night at the historic Lyceum on Parris Island – Beaufort Memorial Hospital's Valentine Ball! Since 1990, the Beaufort Memorial Hospital's Foundation has held it's signature fundraiser to expand and improve the hospital's facilities and services.  Close to 800 guests attend the ball each year.  The $150 per person ticket price includes an invitation to a private dinner party and the black-tie gala – a festive affair with live music, dancing, dessert and a silent auction. Planning and putting on the Valentine Ball takes hundreds of community volunteers. Over 50 Beaufortonians host or co-host the ...
