Sean of the South entertained the crowd Friday night sharing stories of southern culture and the music of his youth. The Bishop's BBQ hosted a large gathering as everyone enjoyed the beautiful weather, outdoor yard games, and fellowship. The Cursillo family gathered after lunch for a Diocesan Ultreya before heading to the Chapel Undercroft for Saturday night festivities. Music by Rock Bottom spread across the grounds prior to the auction and dinner. Bill Hamilton was the 1st Choice Raffle winner choosing the 5 bedroom Perdido Beach house donated by Priscilla Condon. Following the live auction everyone enjoyed the Low Country Boil, continued music with Rock Bottom and dancing under the stars.
Beckwith is blessed by the generosity of our sponsors, donors, shoppers, and guests who made BayLights 2017 a huge success. The live and silent auctions brought in $23,762 with the raffle tickets sale adding an additional $9,000 to the total.
Thank you Bishop Russell, Beckwith Board, Beckwith staff, and all of our Beckwith friends and family for your continued support of BayLights. Thank you Cindy McCrory and Blue Room Photography for the fabulous photos taken during the weekend.
