DICF Summer Update

The summer of 2017 has been a busy one for the Daniel Island Community Fund. Throughout the summer months, the DICF has helped sponsor 12 community events! Read below for more information on these events:

June:

  • The Summer Soiree – a great resident only, all adult party! This year we held the event at the new Crow’s Nest where we danced the night away to the East Coast Party Band and ate some amazing food prepared by Hamby Catering.
  • The Community Campout – Hosted by the Daniel Island Historical Society, the campout took place in Smythe Park where residents gathered around the campfire, learned some DI History and watched a fun family movie.
  • The Rotary Duck Drop – An event you don’t want to miss! Thousands of bright, yellow rubber duckies are dropped off the Wando Bridge and race to the finish line. The proceeds from this event are used to fund Rotary community service programs locally and around the world.
