The Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission’s (CCPRC) non-profit partner, the Charleston County Parks Foundation, will host a fundraiser featuring the Charleston Symphony on March 21. The concert is called Listen to Spring and will be held at McLeod Plantation Historic Site.
Guests are invited to enjoy popular music under the stars at the historic site from 5:30-8:30 p.m. The Charleston Symphony Brass Quintet will take attendees on a musical journey from New Orleans to Broadway, with detours to Europe and South America along the way.
The concert will take place at the historic site’s riverside pavilion, which offers beautiful views of Wappoo Creek. Tickets are $75 and proceeds will support the foundation’s Pass It Forward Project. Hors d’oeuvres and drinks will be included. Tickets are available at CharlestonCountyParksFoundation.org.
The Pass It Forward Project provides opportunities for community members who encounter barriers to access CCPRC’s parks, programs and services. Among other initiatives, the project facilitates summer camp scholarships.
Listen to Spring will be the first benefit event of 2020 for the Charleston County Parks Foundation. The foundation will also host two Sunset Cruises on Shem Creek this year, the first of which will be held June 7.
The vision of the Charleston County Parks Foundation is to develop and sustain projects that enable people to access CCPRC’s facilities, programs and services for living an active and healthy lifestyle.
