SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
Saturday, Sept. 12
4 p.m. Join American Cancer Society volunteers and presenters for Shuck Cancer Coast 2 Coast, a new, virtual fundraising event in which participants can learn how to shuck, prepare, and preserve oysters. The event, which is the brainchild of American Cancer Society leadership volunteers Steve Bell of San Clemente and Joe Gillette of Brooklyn, will raise much-needed funds to support the global cancer-fighting organization at a time when donations are down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The event will be held on Zoom and feature presentations and demos. Participants are encouraged to secure fresh oysters through their local seafood market or vendor in advance of the event, as well as to also consider ordering a few unopened oysters to practice their shucking skills. Individuals may register for the virtual event by making a $25 donation at gofundme.com/shuck-cancer-coast-2-coast, while a household may register with a $40 donation. The first 25 registrants will receive a limited-edition, Shuck Cancer Coast 2 Coast shucking knife, while others may purchase them for a donation of $10 apiece to the same GoFundMe page.
