Lake party raises funds for Bluffton Self Help

Bluffton Self Help's third annual Bash at the Lake annual fundraiser will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. May 5 at Hampton Lake's Clubhouse in Bluffton. The event also will serve as the kickoff event for Self Help's drive for a new building. The charity hopes to erect a 7,000-square-foot facility on Bluffton Road property and vacate the 1,000-square-foot former Bluffton town jail, which has been its home since 1996. The event will have a Cinco de Mayo theme with heavy hors d'oeurves, signature drinks, a silent auction and door prizes. Advance tickets, if purchased prior to May 1, are $40 and may be bought at Self Help, from Self Help board members or at www.blufftonselfhelp.org.
