The Duke Pitchforks return to Charleston for the ninth year in a performance benefiting families where grandparents are raising grandchildren to keep them out of foster care.
Each year, the all-male a capella group from Duke University delights the audience with a range of songs from contemporary hits to old standards. The Pitchforks’ past 2 albums have each won the CARA award for Best Male Collegiate Album in the nation.
Charleston’s own Plantation Singers, one of the most renowned gospel groups in the southeast, are also performing. Don’t miss this incredible night of music for people of all ages.
Thanks to sponsorships by the Charleston Jewish Community Center, Without Walls and Page Bullington, all proceeds from this evening will benefit children and families served by HALOS.
HALOS is non-profit organization that improves outcomes for children who are placed in the care of relatives when their own parents cannot care for them. HALOS is the only program in the tri-county area that supports these kinship caregivers and their families through intensive case management, home visits, support groups, and resource and referral services.
