The Party: Guests stepped through the rabbit hole and took a “potion” labeled “drink me” to enter this Alice in Wonderland-themed gala hosted by the South Carolina Aquarium. Good Catch Partners—restaurants, purveyors, and caterers that serve local, sustainable seafood—provided delectable hors d’oeuvres. Attendees kicked back in the Cheshire Cat’s lounge and sipped concoctions from the Mad Hatter’s tea party-themed cocktail competition. The whimsical evening, which included a silent auction, raised more than $85,000 for the Sea Turtle Care Center, a rehabilitation program aimed at helping injured sea life return to the wild.
Highlight: The tarot card reader who made predictions for the upcoming year
Overheard: “I can’t believe I forgot my top hat at home!”
