Festival of Music and Art

Pawleys Island Wine & Food Gala

This year’s much-loved Pawleys Island music festival is set to strike up the band, so to speak, on October 7th at 7 p.m. with its 20th annual Wine & Food Gala at the Reserve Golf Club of Pawleys Island. Attendees of this benefit that supports the nonprofit charity festival will have the opportunity to sample more than 100 wines from around the globe, dine on hors d’oeuvres crafted by eight of the area’s finest chefs, plus indulge in a three-hour dessert tasting and a silent auction featuring a wealth of luxurious prizes. It’s one of the most popular Pawleys Island events!
