The Lowcountry Parrot Head Club is set to host their 15th Annual Mardi Crawl on Shem Creek in on Saturday, February 16th. Over the past 14 years, this annual event has fulfilled its mission to “party with a purpose,” raising nearly $140,000 for local charities. This year, proceeds from the event benefit the Alzheimer’s Association of South Carolina, Pet Helpers, Ronald McDonald House, and other local charitable organizations.
Participating restaurants include Red’s Ice House, RB’s Seafood Restaurant, The Mill Street Tavern, The Wreck of Richard and Charlene, Vickery’s Bar and Grill, and Saltwater Cowboys. During the crawl, Dave Landeo, and Saluda Shouls will perform on the boat at Red’s Ice House. Red’s will also host the after party with more live music by Three Sheets Island Band.
Registration is $25 in advance available at LCParrotHeads.org or $30 the day of the event (payable with cash or credit card during registration). Advance registrants will receive a short sleeve event t-shirt until February 1ST. Registrants from February 2nd until the day of the event will receive an event t-shirt while supplies last.
