The Isle of Palms Exchange Club held their 16th Annual Oyster Roast and silent auction on January 25. Approximately 350 people enjoyed oysters, chili, and hot dogs on the patio with the sun setting over beautiful Hamlin Creek. Local DJ , Eddie Lukow, of Mobile Boogie provided the music. Generous businesses donated items for the silent auction and raffle. Proceeds from the oyster roast support the IOP Exchange student scholarship program. Scholarships are awarded to local high school seniors and current college students. These students and their parents will be recognized at the Student Scholarship dinner on April 24, 2014. Last year the IOP Exchange Club awarded over $10,000 worth of student scholarships.
