Fundraising has taken a different meaning for Harmony School in recent years. On October 4th, 2015 Columbia, SC suffered a devastating flood that destroyed hundreds of homes and businesses, including our small non-profit school. We had serious flooding in our main building where our three classrooms of preschool/k children resided.
The former preschool building now sits empty as we await a final decision in our recovery process. We were able to move our preschool/k children into two portables on our property for the time being. Our parents have been wonderful and supportive through all of this devastation.
Due to the extensive damage to the preschool, the cost of renovation to bring up to code, and red tape with permits, it became evident that restoring our preschool building to its former self was neither financially feasible nor prudent. Now we are faced with a decision to build a new preschool building by the elementary building, away from the flood zone, or to find a new campus home for Harmony. As we carefully and deliberately consider our options, please join us in supporting our recovery efforts at our annual Oyster Roast and Silent Auction.
Oyster Roast and Silent Auction takes place on Saturday, November 4, 2017. This is our biggest fundraiser of the year!
For the 11th year, Harmony is hosting a fantastic evening featuring live music along with hot steamed oysters, chilled beer and wine and numerous varieties of warm, homemade chili. We’ll also have an awesome silent auction with items such as travel opportunities, restaurant gift certificates, children’s items, gifts, books and original hand-made art – all available to the highest (silent) bidder!
