MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (April 24, 2015) - The Red Cross is inviting the public to two signature events this April, the annual Old Village Home, Garden & Art Tour, a favorite springtime event in the Lowcountry, and the Raise Red Party and Wine Auction. Both events showcase the beauty and history of Mount Pleasant while benefiting the American Red Cross.
Raise Red Party & Wine Auction
The Raise Red Party and Wine Auction is an enjoyable evening with cocktails, heavy hors d'oeuvres, wine tastings, music by the Great Society Band, and dancing. With live and silent auctions, guests will have a chance to bid on things as a Sonoma Valley Winery Trip, a week-long stay in the Blue Ridge Mountains, a Folbot kayak, and wines selected by local sommeliers.

Old Village Home, Garden & Art Tour
This year the Old Village Home, Garden & Art Tour, sponsored by McAlister Development Company, features eight properties, each with a unique and fascinating history. One of the historic homes that guests are invited to tour served as the summer home for Charles Pinckney, the 37th Governor of South Carolina and a signer of the United States Constitution. Along the tour, tasty snacks are being prepared by local chefs and Plein Air artists and their artwork will be nestled in the gardens amongst the spring blooms.
