Jon Sharp and Suzanne Larson in a 1993 production of ‘Love Letters’

The non-profit group, Low Country Hope House, which operates recovery homes for alcoholics and addicts, will present a dinner/theatre fundraiser Saturday, July 31 at 6 p.m. in the Fellowship hall at Carteret Street United Methodist Church, in Beaufort.

An Italian dinner will be followed by the popular play, Love Letters, written by the late A.R. Gurney, one of America’s finest playwrights. It will be performed by husband and wife acting team, Jon Sharp and Suzanne Larson. Sharp, who worked as a television director and actor for many years in Hollywood, will direct the performance.

Organizer James Fordham said the event will raise money to help pay for the recovery homes and services for people in desperate need of help. “Recovery is an issue close to my heart. Our organization operates homes for men and women based on the effective twelve step program begun by Alcoholics Anonymous. We receive no compensation for this, but the spiritual rewards are rich. It is with deep love and commitment that we pursue healing for those who suffer from the painful disease of alcoholism and drug addiction.”

The Low Country Hope House began its operations a few years ago by raising money with weekly yard sales and through donations from the public. It now operates two homes for men with a combined total of 16 beds and one home for women with 6 beds. Fordham and his board members hope to expand their program with the goal of helping more people.

Tickets for the dinner/show are $20 per person or $30 per couple. Tickets must be reserved and paid for in advance. The deadline for ticket sales is July 26. Cash, check, or Venmo accepted.
