The Lowcountry Jaycees will have its inaugural Party in the Park Oyster Roast and Chili Cook-Off 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the field at Beaufort Town Center.
Tickets are $25 and proceeds go to Camp Hope and Second Helpings. The event includes all-you-can-eat oysters, participation in the chili judging, a silent auction and door prizes.
Each canned good brought to donate to Second Helpings earns one door prize ticket.
Camp Hope is a statewide residential camp in South Carolina for intellectually challenged individuals from ages 7 and up, including adults.
Second Helpings' mission is to collect and thereby rescue nutritious surplus foods that would otherwise have been wasted from restaurants, resorts, caterers and supermarkets and distribute it to people in need.
