The Society of Bluffton Artists is partnering with the Bluffton Community Soup Kitchen for its second annual Art Auction fundraiser. The spring fiesta-themed event will take place from 5:30-9:30 p.m. May 5 at the Bostwick Pavilion at Moss Creek. 

The event will feature live and silent auctions of original works of art by local artists. The community is invited to bid on their favorite pieces while enjoying food, beer, wine and sangria in a picturesque Lowcountry waterside setting.

The theme for this year’s event is “Art for the Soul … Food for the Community.” Proceeds from the Art Auction will support the Bluffton Community Soup Kitchen’s core mission of feeding the hungry in Bluffton, as well as SOBA’s scholarships for budding art students in the local community.  

Each week, the Bluffton Community Soup Kitchen provides hundreds of hot meals to the elderly, sick, shut-in, homeless and members of our community living in poverty. In addition, the organization offers a food pantry which includes healthy food options and hygiene supplies. 

In 2022, the Bluffton Soup Kitchen distributed more than 35,000 hot meals to local residents in need. For more information, visit
