This Saturday, April 27, the Hamby Catering & Events team will be hard at work, serving 400+ of Charleston’s finest a four-course seated-served sustainable meal at the 2013 SC Aquarium Conservation Gala. We are thrilled for this opportunity to showcase customized culinary offerings created exclusively for this event by our Executive Chef John Brunski. The annual event focuses on preserving and sustaining the health and beauty of our natural world.
This year’s gala theme is Oceans. Guests will feel immersed in the various tastes, sounds and sights of the deep blue sea. Liberty Square will be transformed into a black-tie swoon-worthy venue by the skillful hand of Mitchell Crosby and the JMC Charleston team. Prepare yourself to travel through the depths of the ocean blue with dramatic lighting, shades of the sea and accent pieces that will make you feel “submerged.”
Each year, the SC Aquarium honors one individual with the Environmental Stewardship Award; this year’s recipient is Robert “Ted” Turner, III. In addition to receiving this award, Hamby is honoring Ted Turner with a menu item that is specifically tailored to his legacy of stewardship and land/wildlife conservation. Can you guess the featured component of this dish??

An event with seated-served style service requires a lot of prior planning to ensure that each guest is given their individual plated serving in a timely, proper fashion. Instead of putting our creative touch on a buffet or station setup, for seated-served events, each plate is considered an opportunity for creative flair and precise plating.
Add in transporting all the necessary event items and staff to Orangeburg from our home base in Charleston, SC. Oh, and did I mention that there will be 320 guests for this plated luncheon? All these elements combined present a project that Executive Chef John Brunski and the entire Hamby culinary team can really sink their teeth into.
The National Association of Realtors reached out to Hamby Catering & Events to handle the event design and catering needs for the finale event to their Luxury & Second Home Symposium at the end of March 2012.
While the symposium was held at the Sanctuary on Kiawah Island, the finale event was held at two historic homes downtown Charleston. While guests toured the homes on South Battery and Water Street, Hamby served up eats and sips to tantalize their tastebuds.
Take a moment to look at this beautiful Water Street venue. Charleston provided a perfect early spring day for this event.
