Charleston Silver Lady hosts fundraiser for SCCADVASA

Contributed by SCCADVASA.


Dawn Corley, the Charleston Silver Lady Dawn Corley, the Charleston Silver Lady Join The Charleston Silver Lady and her Southern Pearls on January 28, 2018, from 2–4 p.m. at William L. Yates Conference Center, 1000 Center Point Road, Columbia, SC 29210 for a special event benefiting SCCADVASA.

The Charleston Silver Lady, Dawn Corley, will present a 90 minute program about items from her personal collection of storied silver. The Charleston Silver Lady is a nationally renowned expert on antique silver.

The goal of this event is to raise $10,000 for SCCADVASA. In addition to the Charleston Silver Lady’s appearance, raffle prizes and refreshments are all being donated with 100 percent of proceeds going directly to support the work of SCCADVASA. The venue for this event is being generously donated by the South Carolina Hospital Association.

A range of pearl jewelry will be available from the Charleston Silver Lady for sale at the event. The pearls used are purchased directly from pearl divers from various countries and reflect the unique waters of their origin. All proceeds from these sales will benefit SCCADVASA. Other raffle prizes include a string of pearls donated by Corley with a retail value of $450 and a facial with a brow wax donated by Jennifer Griffitt.

Corley is a native Charlestonian. She perfected her expertise on silver in antique and silver shops on King Street in downtown Charleston. In those 20 plus years, she has become a much sought after lecturer having given presentations and lectures to U.S. presidents, foreign heads of state and dignitaries, as well as many corporations.

“Dawn Corley is the most recent of nine generations of Charlestonians who have handed down, in one form or another, family heirlooms accumulated through the years. One of the things Dawn inherited was a love of history, fostered by an aunt who collected antiques.” William Thrift, Columbia Home & Garden, 2011.

SCCADVASA is honored and excited to have Dawn Corley, the Charleston Silver Lady and her Southern Pearls host this incredible event to support their mission to end domestic and sexual violence in South Carolina.
