Celebrate Beaufort's 300 years at gala

Beaufort's 300th birthday will be observed with "Time & Tides: A Celebration of 300 Years" by the Historic Beaufort Foundation from 6:30 to 11:30 p.m. April 30.

The event will be at Tidewater, a historic home at 302 Federal St. overlooking the Beaufort River. The celebration, timed to coincide with high tide, will be catered and include toasts, live dance music and an open bar, according to the foundation. During a silent auction, guests can bid on an overnight hunting trip and various other excursions and gifts.

Tickets are $75 a person for those younger than 35; $100 otherwise. For reservations, call the foundation at 843-379-3331 or go to www.historicbeaufort.org and click "Shop."
