The Art of Community Gala + Auction

Celebrating the spirit of Palmetto Bluff’s storied past and continuing the tradition of Southern hospitality and community connection.

Stayed Tuned for 2024 Information!

It was an incredible spring-like evening for the inaugural Art of Community Gala + Auction on Saturday, February 25, 2023. Guests were dressed to the nines in the heart of Wilson Village for a night of hot jazz, cool drinks, and a swanky live auction. The evening’s Jazz Age theme paid homage to the years R.T. Wilson, Jr. and his wife Marion lived at Palmetto Bluff, taking place in the same location as the Wilson Mansion, which once hosted some of the most extravagant Southern parties in the early 1900s.

The Art of Community Golf Tournament

During the day, members and guests participated in a lively member-guest style shamble tournament on the May River Golf Course. Sponsored by Wheels Up, the 18-hole charity tournament included delectable bites and drinks, and fun activations all culminating in awards given at the gala that evening.

Online Silent Auction

The 2023 online silent auction featured incredible artwork by Palmetto Bluff’s Artists in Residence and FLOW Gallery + Workshop, as well as other generously donated items from local and regional businesses.
