Jewels & Jeans

Each spring we host an annual event, Jewels & Jeans—a fun and exciting way to help with our cause. You can participate by purchasing tickets, sponsoring a table, or donating items and services for our silent auction.

Dear Foundation Supporters,


I wanted to extend a sincere Thank You to all the individuals and organizations who made Jewels & Jeans 2020 a successful event. We could not have done it without you! Board members and volunteers went all out with their coordination and advanced preparations for this year’s event. As always, we had generous sponsors, donors and attendees. Students, teachers and schools in the Beaufort County School District will benefit as the money we raised this year will enable us to fund many Innovative Teacher Grants, School Resource Grants, and Student Enrichment Grants.

We have been awarding grants since 2009, and to date have given over $200,000 to deserving teachers and schools. These grants benefit thousands of students as teachers and schools provide innovative learning opportunities! It is through your generosity that this is possible.

As always, our sponsors and Jewels & Jeans Silent and Live Auction donors have opened their hearts to our students through their generous donations. 

Finally, a big thank you to our generous sponsors. Their kindness and generosity is appreciated and will allow us to continue to provide innovative learning experiences for our Beaufort County School District students.


Most sincerely,

Deborah E. Colella, Foundation Chair
