Our Very Own – Candice is 40 Under 40!

We are so pleased to announce that Candice Wigfield, Managing Director of Hamby Catering & Event,  has been selected as a 2017 Forty Under 40 winner by the Charleston Regional Business Journal, nominated by members of the Charleston community. 2017 marks the 20th anniversary of the Forty Under 40 awards.

An excerpt from her nomination says, “Candice prides herself on recruiting world-class talent to the sales and culinary team. Hamby Catering is now considered an industry leader in the number two destination-wedding city in the country, much to Candice’s tireless efforts and loyalty.” Hamby Catering has been a premiere caterer in the Southeast since 1979 assisting clients in personalized menus using only the freshest, most sustainable ingredients.

Since 1998, this elite 40 has been comprised of people under 40 years of age who have excelled in the professional arena and in community involvement. A panel of judges determined who among the nominees would be named to the 2017 class of Forty Under 40. This group of 40 individuals will be recognized at our Forty Under 40 event on Wednesday, May 10.

The event will be held from 5:30 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. at Alhambra Hall in Mount Pleasant. For more information or to reserve tickets, please visit here.

Diving Into 2017

We dove right into the new year by catering more than 1,200 guests at the annual Snyder Grand Ball. Partygoers celebrated 2017 with dancing, a full bar and eats on every level of the aquarium from Hamby Catering. The evening also featured music by the David Higgins Band & DJ NattyHeavy. In the midst of it all, guests even stopped for an occasional fish sighting.

Our menu included easy to eat foods in kraft boats including our Lowcountry Jambalaya, BBQ Chicken Thighs, Buttermilk Fried Chicken and Hand Pressed Waffles and Braised Short Ribs with Mashed Potatoes. Downstairs in the tank room, guests snacked on our Signature Farm Stand Display.

As the champagne was poured for a midnight toast, attendees enjoyed interacting with our S’mores Trail Mix Display, featuring Golden Grahams, Mini Marshmallows, Butterscotch Chips, White Chocolate Chips and Chocolate Chips. Total yum!

It was a wonderful way for some of our staff to ring in the new year by catering one of Charleston’s most celebrated events. We look forward to a successful 2017!
