Georgetown County Chamber of Commerce100 Years | Pawleys Island, SC | EVENTS BY SANTANA

The voice of businesses and the county’s biggest promoter of member success deserves a Gala worthy of 100 years of dedicated service to the Georgetown community. What an honor it was to coordinate both the 100th birthday and the end of year Gala for the Georgetown County Chamber of Commerce.

To kick off such a momentous occasion we opted for a birthday celebration that commemorated some of the most iconic items that have also withstood the tests of 100 years time! The Hammock Shops porch was the perfect backdrop accompanied by uplighting provided by GlobalTruth Entertainment that took the party to another level. We showcased an menu offering some Low Country favorites - chicken and waffles, fried green tomatoes with pimento Cheese, shrimp & grits and egg rolls :: Although, it was the CheerWine and MoonPie bar that stole the show!

Also celebrating 100 years is the famous Chuck Taylor shoe which quickly became the theme for our centerpieces & floral arrangements! That’s right, we used the timeless street shoe to decorate each table! It was a great turn out, but how could it not be with The Reggie Sullivan Band playing in the courtyard gazebo. The celebration did not end here!

Sticking closely to the time of 100 years ago, we themed the Chamber’s premier event around the Roaring 20s! All the members were invited to a Roaring Night celebrating and commemorating 100 years of service. A seating lounge fit for the times was brought in by EventWorks while the most charming saxophone soloist entertained the prohibited cocktail hour. We even created a Georgetown Chamber memorabilia room with important keepsakes and tokens from their esteemed past. This end of the year bash and awards ceremony shined with black silk linen and topped with the most beautiful arrangements of white feathers and pearls. After a delicious dinner provided by Pawleys Plantation, they blew out the birthday candles of a custom gold “G” cake donated by Pawleys Island Bakery. The roaring night ended with a toast and vintage coupes full of sparkling champagne!

Happy 100 years Georgetown County Chamber of Commerce! Cheers to 100 more!
