Share Our Suzy presents the 8th Annual Suzy McGrane Memorial Party on Saturday, May 26th at 5pm at Lighthouse on the Creek in Mt. Pleasant. In addition to classic shrimp boats, playful dolphins and lowcountry sunsets on Shem Creek, this favorite Memorial Weekend event will feature cocktails, a spread from Home Team BBQ, and live music from Five Way Friday & Gaslight Street. $35 advance tickets are available at etix.com or admission is $50 at the door.

It is the sponsors that make the event possible: Roper St. Francis Cancer Care, Richardson, Patrick, Westbrook and Brickman, O’Brion’s Pub & Grille, Shoreline Productions and Eskimo Advertising. Additional sponsorship opportunities are still available for the event.

Suzy McGrane was a local photographer who was diagnosed with breast cancer in her early twenties and ultimately lost her battle when the disease returned years later. What started as Save Our Suzy is now known as Share Our Suzy. The goal of SOS is to bridge the financial gap and allow breast cancer patients to focus solely on recovery and not the financial stress brought on during this very difficult battle. Funds raised cover the critical areas that insurance companies do not by providing assistance to those with daily needs such as wigs, prosthetics, childcare, gas cards, utility bill assistance, medication assistance and more. Share Our Suzy’s mission is to raise money and resources to assist and support breast cancer patients in South Carolina from diagnosis to remission.
