33RD ANNUAL OLD FORT JACKSON SILENT AUCTION & LOW COUNTRY BOIL
8/23

HELP SUPPORT OLD FORT JACKSON AT THE 33RD ANNUAL SILENT AUCTION AND LOW COUNTRY BOIL THIS SATURDAY (8/23) AT 6PM AT THE FORT.  RAFFLE PRIZES INCLUDE UGA FOOTBALL GAME TICKETS, AUTOGRAPHED BASEBALLS FROM HALL OF FAMERS, 2 NIGHT STAY ON DAFUSKIE AND MORE….   Tickets to a UGA football game, autographed baseballs from MLB Hall of Famers, a two night stay at a cottage on Daufuskie Island, gift certificates to fantastic new restaurants such the Florence and Pacci, and children's entertainment from Savannah Children's Museum!.org   33rd Annual Old Fort Jackson Silent Auction and Low Country Boil  Saturday at 6:00pm   Old Fort Jackson in Savannah, Georgia      “Once you hit the 200 mark, it’s kind of hard to hold yourself together,” he said.   The 33rd annual Old Fort Jackson silent auction and Lowcountry boil will help. It supports preservation, operation and continued teaching of the fort’s history.   More 40,000 people visit the site each year, Lee said. “It’s our turn to support the fort.”  The party, from 6-10 p.m. Aug. 23, includes $10 plates piled with a range of choices — Lowcountry boil, barbecue and rosemary chicken — music, soldier lessons for children, $4 drinks, including wine, beer or cocktails, and a large silent auction.   Other perks shouldn’t hurt the 200-year-old open-air fort’s appeal: Costumed “soldiers,” and in the background, the Savannah River, a sunset, city skyline and the Talmadge Memorial Bridge.   The silent auction is from 6-9 p.m., after which staff will fire Civil War artillery, including what Lee believes to be the largest original Civil War cannon in existence. They will also fire a 9-inch dahlgren at the event.     Come out to see the sights and smell the powder when the cannon goes off, Lee said.   Round-trip tickets to anywhere in the continental United States are also up for grabs from Jet Blue to the highest silent auction bidder.   Another appealing auction item, according to Lee, is a set of four tires worth $750. Other items include two nights in a cottage on Daufuskie Island, a $100 gift certificate to The Florence, two VIP passes to the 2014 Savannah Craft Brew Fest, artwork, jewelry and a flying lesson.  The Savannah Children’s Museum will entertain young attendees, who will both build and knock down mini forts. Along with the fun are lessons on trajectory and building techniques. “They don’t realize they’re learning at the same time,” Lee said.   Adults get to have their fun, too, he said. Former events averaged around 350 people, according to Lee, who said the fundraiser grows each year.  The small, grassroots group Coastal Heritage Society opened Old Fort Jackson in 1976. But neither the state nor federal governments provide financial support for the structure. Visitor fees and fundraisers such as the fort’s upcoming and largest event keep it going.   If the people of Old Fort Jackson didn’t find a way to generate money, then who would take possession of the fort? Lee continued, “If it’s not open to the public, then what’s it for?”

CPR SEEKS HELP FOR HEARTWORM POSITIVE DOGS
TFN

COASTAL PET RESCUE IS SEEKING DONATIONS FOR HEARTWORM POSITIVE DOG TREATMENTS.  It's been a long year for Coastal Pet Rescue, and with 99 canine intakes this year,   it's only going to be longer.  So far, Coastal Pet Rescue has treated five canines for heartworms, and two more are still awaiting their turn, but help is urgently needed to fund the medical care.  Although heartworms are preventable thanks to monthly medications, many of the dogs Coastal Pet Rescue rescues have not been kept current -  If ever at all - on the prevention, and thus need the expensive treatments.  Treatments can run $600 to $1200 depending upon the severity of the infestation, and since Coastal Pet Rescue does not believe in passing on the excessive medical bills for adopters and instead charges only a flat $150 adoption fee, there's a lot left to cover.  Donations may be made online at coastalpetrescue.org/donate or by mail to Coastal Pet Rescue, PO Box
30462, Savannah, GA 31410.

Each year, picnickers can enter the Picnic Contest where they are encouraged to design an imaginative picnic spread that is inspired by the theme of the evening including beauty, love, elegance, and romance.  “We’re amazed every year by the creativity of picnickers, not only their picnic spreads, but the interesting costumes that some choose to wear,” added Parker. “Many of the theme entrants suggested that people wanted a theme of nostalgia. The romantic theme chosen was a combination of a number of ideas entered."   This year, Parker’s invited the public to suggest this year’s theme and received over 300 entries.  The annual free concert is highlighted by a performance by the Savannah Philharmonic as well as a number of featured performers, and draws crowds of as many as 20,000 picnickers. “There are endless great musical selections that the Philharmonic can choose,” said David Pratt, executive director, who along with Peter Shannon, conductor, will coordinate the musical presentations of all of this year’s performers.  The song “Fly Me to the Moon” was made famous by recordings by African American cabaret singer Mabel Mercer, and later by Johnny Mathis.

JUNIOR ACHIEVEMETN AND COLONILA GROUP 15TH ANNUAL SAVANNAH BUSINESS HALL OF FAME.
11/10

THE 15TH ANNUAL SAVANNAH BUSINESS HALL OF FAME IS BEING HOSTED BY THE JUNIOR ACHIEVEMENT AND COLONIAL GROUP MONDAY NOVEMBER 10TH. THIS YEARS EVENT WILL HONOR JOE BUCK AND GENE CARTLEDGE.  Junior Achievement and Colonial Group Announce Laureates for 15th Annual Savannah Business Hall of Fame on November 10  This year’s event will honor Joe Buck and Gene Cartledge as 2014 Savannah Business Hall of Fame Inductees  SAVANNAH, Ga. – Junior Achievement of Georgia-Coastal Region is pleased to announce the names of the laureates for the 15th annual Savannah Business Hall of Fame being held on Monday, November 10, at the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center. This year’s honorees are Dr. Joseph A. Buck and Eugene Cartledge.   Junior Achievement (JA), along with Colonial Group, will host this year’s Savannah Business Hall of Fame where inductees will be honored for their business accomplishments as well as their extensive contributions to the community.    A leader in education for our community with his commitment to the educational needs of students, Dr. Joe Buck has been the Savannah-Chatham County School Board President since 2006. As an administrator for almost 40 years at Armstrong State University, he built valuable relationships between the university and the community before retiring in 2006 as vice president of student affairs. He also assisted in the execution of two key leadership programs, Leadership Savannah and Leadership Georgia, which help professionals gain leadership skills and a greater understanding of their community.  Mr. Eugene Cartledge, a national business leader and advocate for young children, decided to make his home in Savannah after spending much of his career in Virginia and New York. As former president of Union Camp, the largest paper manufacturer in the United States, Cartledge is credited with leading the company through its largest expansion ever and supporting the development of The Landings. He also serves or has served as the director on the boards of many notable companies including Delta Airlines and Sunoco, hosts multiple charitable events at his home and has served on the Endowment Board of Bethesda Academy for the past six years.  According to Johnathon Barrett, vice president of JA of Georgia, this event provides a representation of what it takes to be successful to students.  “These inductees demonstrate to our children that the giving of one’s self is a large part of being successful,” he said. “In the words of Calvin Coolidge, ‘No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor has been the reward for what he gave.’ I think our inductees are great testaments to that philosophy, giving back to the Savannah community and leaving a positive impression on the lives of young people.”  The Savannah Business Hall of Fame is Savannah’s premier black tie business event. The gala will be held at the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center on Monday, November 10, beginning at 6 p.m. with a cocktail reception, featuring an upscale silent auction. A three-course dinner and the awards ceremony will follow, featuring video montages produced by WTOC. The evening will culminate with a champagne toast to the inductees who will be honored. More than 500 guests are slated to attend the event. Sponsorship and tickets are available for the Savannah Business Hall of Fame.
