Patrons of the 2004 event were treated
to a smorgasbord
of delicacies, from carved roast (above) to sushi (right and below.)
The silent auction items (above) drew a host of bids from the crowd.
The bar served the gathering their favorite libations as they relaxed with friends and learned more about the Hampton Fund and the S.C. Governor's Cup Billfishing Series, co-host for the 2004 event.
Decorations, organization and banquet activities were coordinated by a host of volunteers. Emily Schroder (left) and Diedre Menefee (right), plus (not pictured) Terri Hallman, Betty Burn, Wayne Waltz, Chantal Rice, Hampton Fund Chairman Sam Hiott and many others all worked long hours to make the event a success.
