Gimme Shelter

Gimme Shelter at Home Team BBQ is back — with all the off-menu eats, live music, and silent auction items you could ever want. Guests can look forward to nostalgic food items like buffalo wings, drunken pimento cheese (with fried saltines!), and buffet items like meatloaf and patty melts, fried chicken, and shrimp rolls. Enjoy an open bar featuring specialty Home Team cocktails. There will be live music from Junco Partner and a silent auction that includes an array of gift cards to local restaurants, concert tickets, and footballs signed by Dabo Swinney and Will Muschamp. Proceeds from the event benefit Operation Home.

Thurs. April 25, 6-10 p.m. $75/all-inclusive. Home Team BBQ, 126 Williman St. Downtown. operationhome.org

Cornhole for a Cause

Cornhole for a Cause benefits three local charities — and all you have to do is play cornhole! Enjoy the classic board/bag game at Magnolia Park this Saturday. You can look forward to music, cash prizes, food trucks, and beer available for purchase. While it costs money to register, viewers can watch for free. The goal is to raise $10,000 to benefit the Charleston Parks Conservancy, Lowcountry Orphan Relife, and Pattison’s Academy.

Sat. April 27, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. $50/per team, Free/spectators. Magnolia Park and Community Garden, 720 Sycamore Ave. West Ashley

Adult Field Day

Going Places has partnered with On Purpose Adventures to present an adult field day. With two divisions — “competitive athletes” and “average joes” — games include a good old fashioned three-legged race, crab walk, spoon relay, tug-of-war, and more. Each division will be awarded a first, second, and third place price, and each participant will receive a free pass to CryoEvolution, food, and three beers. The money raised from this event will go towards buying bikes, locks, and helmets for 425 disadvantaged kids who attend Sanders-Clyde Elementary.

Sat. April 27 at 10 a.m. $400/team of 6-10. Palmetto Islands County Park, 444 Needlerush Parkway. Mt. Pleasant
