This year's Bluegrass, Bidding and BBQ silent auction will include live music from the Mustache Brothers, local BBQ from The Friendly Caterer and specialty drinks. All proceeds will benefit Historic Columbia.
The Columbia-based Mustache Brothers have been entertaining the state of South Carolina and beyond for over a decade. Devoted followers have grown accustomed to their lively performances filled with a unique blend of bluegrass, classic country and rock and roll.
The Friendly Caterer has provided top-notch service to the Midlands for 15 years. While they offer a variety of specialty items, The Friendly Caterer’s barbeque, slow cooked for 18 hours on oak and smoke wood, is a local favorite.
The silent auction portion of the event opens online – via https://event.gives/palladiumbbbq – at 8 a.m., Oct. 14, and closes at 10 p.m., Oct. 28. Those bidding aren’t required to attend the Oct. 28 event.
In consideration of the continuing COVID-19 Pandemic, tickets are limited, and guests will be in socially distanced squares of up to four people. Guests can request squares with friends or be randomly assigned to a square by answering questions through Bidr when purchasing tickets.
