The 2023 LFWMH Auction is now OPEN!
The Auction will close on May 24th at 8:00 p.m.
To visit the auction, please go to:
This coming Saturday, May 20th, you are invited to the tapping of a beer brewed by Bender. Grimm, Godsey and Lewis. Festivities lot 9 Brewery will begin at 4 pm. All proceeds from beer sold that day will go to the LFWMH.
To whet your taste buds, here is a description of the “BEER” named Bravo Echo Echo Romeo:
Golden Lager brewed with a blend of American & German Malts while utilizing some Brown flaked rice for a smooth crisp finish. German Noble hops help to accentuate the “classic” old school Lager aroma that our fathers loved. This is the type of Lager you want after a hard day’s work.
There will be live music by Spike Ivory and Stormy’s Food Truck
will be there as well; they specialize in Philly Cheese Steaks.
Please come on out and enjoy a beer or two or take home a
crowler while supporting the Lowcountry Foundation
for Wounded Military Heroes!
As noted on their website, "Operation Shower’s mission is to host joyous, awesome baby showers for military families to ease the stresses of deployment and separation. Since its founding in 2007, Operation Shower has hosted baby showers for thousands of military families, thanks to the overwhelming support of individuals and groups across the country."
This year the LFWMH hosted the Operation Shower "Hello Baby" event as part of the RBC Heritage Tournament Activities. This was our fourth time sponsoring/co-sponsoring this event for military families. We are honored to share a thank you email from Operation Shower's Director of Program Outreach, Ginger Shockley:
" We did it! With much THANKS to you for all your wonderful help during the Lowcountry Foundation for Wounded Military Heroes baby shower.
For some of you this was your first experience volunteering with us. We are so glad we got to meet you and look forward to working with you again. And for some of you this was a second or third time. We at Operation Shower truly appreciate all your help, love, and support. We know we cannot do it without people like you. We are so grateful that you were willing to volunteer with us.
Thank you again for helping us share joy and honor military families."
Dear Friends of LFWMH:
We invite you to join us at The Art of Community Gala + Auction at Palmetto Bluff.
Get dressed to the nines for a night of hot jazz, cool drinks, and a swanky silent & live auction including fine art, travel, and curated experiences. You can also enjoy dancing the night away to the well-known Preservation Hall Jazz Band on the Wilson Village Green.
The Lowcountry Foundation for Wounded Military Heroes is honored to have been chosen as one of the five local non-profits at this inaugural event and we invite you to step back into the world of the Wilsons to raise a glass and place a bid — all for a good cause.
In addition to the Lowcountry Foundation for Wounded Military Heroes, this event will benefit some of our most deserving Bluffton neighbors:
Boys & Girls Club of the Lowcountry;
Bluffton Self Help;
Greater Bluffton Jasper County Volunteers in Medicine
Palmetto Bluff Conservancy.

The Board of Directors, LFWMH
Congratulations to our own Russ Spicer, CEO and Founder of the Lowcountry Foundation for Wounded Military Heroes, for being selected by the Emily Geiger Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution to receive their 2022 Community Service Award.
Joined by several LFWMH Board/Committee Members and his proud wife, Karen, Russ was presented with the service award by Krista Taracuk, Regent NCDAR on November 10th, at the Palmetto Electric Company.
Designed to recognize individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the community, especially in support of our local military personnel, we couldn’t think of anyone more deserving of this honor. Russ’ contributions have impacted not only those in the Bluffton community, but soldiers and their families who have a connection with the Lowcountry of South Carolina and Georgia’s Coastal Empire.
On behalf of everyone involved with our Foundation, especially those who have and will benefit from your initiative and support, we “SALUTE” you and thank you for all you have done. You have touched more lives than you can ever imagine.

Ladies foursome on the 9th hole... judging by the smiles, it was a great day!
We continue to be amazed and humbled by this event and its organizers, the wonderful veterans and the Crescent community. Through a combination of sponsorships, raffles, 50/50, mulligans and remembrance signage, they presented the LFWMH with a donation of nearly $19,000!
With deepest gratitude, we thank all who supported this terrific event!
On October 20th, the newly opened Victoria's Treasures hosted a Wine Tasting and Home Decor Event at their store, with the ticket proceeds benefitting the
Lowcountry Foundation for Wounded Military Heroes.
All who attended had a great time tasting wines and flavorful treats (thank you tacarÓn!), as they enjoyed live music and shopping. We send out our gratitude to the hosts and guests for the opportunity to get together and raise funds for this cause so close to our hearts - our Wounded Heroes. Thank you so much!
