Diann Shaddox Foundation for Essential Tremor
This weekend was packed full of drama. We, the authors/artist at the Folly Beach Wine & Sign, a fundraiser for the Diann Shaddox Foundation for Essential Tremor, knew the forecast was for rain, but being diehards we decided to give Saturday a chance. Little did we know that we would be in the Perfect Storm.
The slow rain began and all was well… for about fifteen minutes, then the storm hit. Strong winds & heavy rain began and started lifting tents, which were strapped down pulling them loose, making them dance twirling like ballerinas. Everyone rushed outside to save the tents. We looked like a crew on a ship battening down the hatches with gust of wind and rain beating down on us. The wind did win taking a few large boards off the arbor of the SC Parks & Recreation & Locklear’s Beach City Grill, but we were able to save the tents.
Since we had won the battle with the storm we decided to extend the Folly Beach Wine & Sign for a second day. The next day, Sunday, was a beautiful day with blue skies and temperatures in the low 70’s. The winds were still gusty but the day was a perfect day.
I had the best time and want to say thank you to the SC Parks & Recreation, Locklear’s Beach City Grill, all our authors/artists, (who had a wonderful sense of humor), and everyone that came out to support our event and help raise money for the Diann Shaddox Foundation for Essential Tremor.
I met so many great people, Linda, Jeff, Elaine, Matthew, Peggy, Bill, Trudy, Mandy, Kirtland, Frank, Kathy, Lourie, and so many more.
We had so much fun that we have decided the next Folly Beach Wine & Sign will be held on Saturday & Sunday.
