On Saturday night, June 1st, the Chickasaw Point Women’s Club hosted a community social and talent auction. All proceeds were for the benefit of the Oconee County Safe Harbor shelter for victims of domestic violence and their children. The turn-out for the event was awesome, and the generosity of the bidders was touching. The group raised $5100.00 for Safe Harbor by donating their talents and services. The talents ranged from hosting gourmet dinners in Chickasaw homes, sunset cruises, low country boils, local artist artwork, paddle and sail board lessons, a great dental package from our local dentist, “Cookie of the Month” for a year, handy woman cleaning or painting services, creative party baskets, to hand crafted treasures. The Red Door and The Healthy Olive on Ram Cat Alley, The Corner Liquor Store, and Bracopa also made donations for the gift baskets. Thank you to all of our Chickasaw friends and local businesses and to our auctioneers, Gene Blair and David Hageman, for a successful and fun event!
