Brief Ceremony at Military Memorial on Old Navy Base to Mark Occasion

Thanks to the generosity of five sponsors, Charleston Animal Society will be giving 200 Chili Cook-off & Oyster Roast tickets to Joint Base Charleston for distribution to military personnel and their families. “The military do so much for us as a community and a country, that this is just one small gesture of our appreciation,” said Chili Cook-off Organizer Elena Lawson, “Knowing that these troops and their families will be able to enjoy such a fun event is great news!”

The background for the event will be the military memorial at North Charleston’s Riverfront Park. It is a beautiful setting on the Cooper River, right on the old Navy Base.
