bondUSCB Center for the Arts is rolling out the red carpet for its annual “An Affair with the Arts” benefit. The Moonlight Over Monte Carlo casino theme promises to entertain and delight all who attend.  Black Jack and Craps tables, live music, a silent auction with amazing treasures, open bar and fabulous nibbles from The Kitchen are only some of the highlights of the evening.  

And not to be missed this year is the exhibition poker game featuring some of Beaufort’s top card sharks battling it out all in the name of the arts. It’s an event James Bond, himself, wouldn’t miss. So dust off your Bond attire, shine up your Bond Girl sequins and join USCB Center for the Arts for a night of the “Royale” lifestyle. Lady luck is calling – Saturday, January 19 at 7pm.  Chairpersons for the 2019 Affair with Arts benefit are Leigh Ann Pingeree and Melissa Florence.  

The Center for the Arts is Beaufort’s Community Center with something for everyone.  Outstanding live performances, original art exhibits from local and beyond artists, informative and intriguing movie series and certainly not to be missed – Met Opera Live in HD, Beaufort Children’s Theatre, The Community Nutcracker, Beaufort Theatre Company, and Mainstage Productions like Feelin’ Groovy, Ain’t Misbehavin’, and Gaelic Storm. An avenue of escape, education and genuine entertainment. Located in Historic Beaufort – be at the center of it all.  USCB Center for the Arts
