The second annual Charleston Outlaws Rugby Football Club’s Charleston Rugby Charity Auction is headed to the South Carolina Aquarium on Thursday, September 8, from 7 to 11 p.m. in formal attire.
The night will be filled with celebrity guest stars, “Calhoun’s Calling” jamming the night away with an opening performance by America's Got Talent sensation Nick Pike. 95SX’s Party Girl Kelly G and Joey’s Town Joe Girard will be co-emceeing while DJ Natty Heavy pumps up the jams. An open bar and hors d’oeuvres are included in the price of admission.
This year’s event includes bachelors and bachelorettes who will be auctioned off to the highest bidder. Celebrities being auctioned off range from radio DJs, news reporters, band members, and actors to local promoters, business owners, and rugby players. There will also be a selection of items for silent auction if you are on a tighter budget or just love to walk away with an incredible deal.
The proceeds from the auction will benefit four local charities: Pet Helpers, a non-profit pet adoption center and low cost spay/neuter clinic that serves communities across the Lowcountry; Charleston Youth Development Center, a non-profit organization that operates emergency shelters and group homes, and provides mentoring services for at risk youth; the Charleston Outlaws RFC which is putting all of their proceeds towards the future purchase of land and facilities for all local rugby including the colleges, high schools, and youth; and Charleston Youth Rugby where the funds will help high school and youth rugby teams pay for equipment, jerseys, administration fees, and more.
Tickets are $30 in advance, $40 after Sept 1st, and $50 the day of the event. VIP tickets are limited and sell for $60.
