Hope on Goat benefits Yo Art

  • Wednesday, February 6, 2013

The “Hope on Goat” benefit is set for March 30 from 2-6 p.m. on Goat Island. This fundraiser started in 2010 and benefits a local charity annually. At this year’s event, 100 percent of the ticket sales will directly benefit the programming at Yo Art. Tickets are $40 each and can be purchased in advance at yoartinc.org by clicking the PayPal “Donation” button (please write under purpose “Goat Island Benefit”). Children under 12 are free. Ticket sales are limited to 200 and this event has sold out in the past. Advanced tickets are encouraged or tickets can be purchased at the welcome table the day of the event.

The ticket price includes boat shuttles provided by Barrier Island Eco Tours, running to and from the Isle of Palms Marina throughout the entire event as well as fresh local oysters steamed over a hot cedar fire.

Local live music will be performed by Jordan Igoe and friends, The Distinguished Gentlemen and others to be announced. There will be a children’s area and a fun filled day on a secluded island will be had by all. Homemade locally caught fish stew, hot dogs, dessert and water will be available for purchase. Coolers are welcome and chairs are encouraged. A silent auction will include donated items from local

artists, craftsmen, restaurants and vacation rentals to name a few.

The Mission: Yo Art enhances the classroom curriculum with media arts programming designed to spark the students’ curiosity and engage them in issues beyond their own life boundaries. Yo Art is working in 10 public schools and directly impacts more than 500 students each school year. Yo Art is filling the gap where funding has diminished for art related education. Our programs expand on the arts by relating to global and local issues such as recycling, good nutritional habits and community service. At Memminger a mural was made by fourth graders from non recyclable bottle caps for the school’s partial magnet school theme ‘Globalization’ and the project won recognition from the Nickelodeon’s “Big Green Help” program.
