Mardi Gras Beaufort

Dance, shimmy, and rock out to a live zydeco beat with Dwayne Dopsie & the Zydeco Hellraisers at this grand fundraiser for ARTworks, the arts council of Beaufort, Port Royal and the Sea Islands. The event is a bead-swinging bash, in celebration of ARTworks’ mission to apply the many creative tools of the arts to strengthen artists and to enrich audiences, collectors and visitors through high quality arts experiences and arts education programs.
Mardi Gras Beaufort is Saturday, January 29, 7 to 11 p.m., at The Lyceum on Parris Island. For the festively-dressed guests, the 20-member committee has put together a parade of surprises: dinner, live music, spacious dance floor, creative camaraderie and a silent auction.
In the auction, guests will have a chance to peruse the treasures and then bid to win original art, from tribal beat leopard god masks donated by a private collector to contemporary abstractions by Carol Kamm.
The Hellraisers, direct from New Orleans, play the meanest washboard and the hunkiest squeezebox around.
Tickets are $75 per person and tables of eight are $600, available at 843-379-2787 and ArtWorksInBeaufort.org.
