Now in its 17th year, FOCI has raised over $630,000 to over 80 individual worthy charities in Beaufort and Jasper Counties. Concentrating on non-profit organizations that provide services in the areas of housing, medical attention, youth education, safe havens, pre-natal and child care, mental health, literacy, legal aid and special needs for the disabled, FOCI grants provide the financial support to critical programs and projects that otherwise may be cancelled due to lack of funding.

The 2016 FOCI Charity Golf Tournament was a great success !!
Saturday, November 5, 2016
Our 2016 Golf Tournament, our 16th, was one of the best yet. In spite of Hurricane Matthew, 128 participants teed it up for worthy cause, raising over $36,000 for local charities
The late Dr. Lenny Levin, a friend to all and founder of the FOCI organization was memorialized and fondly remembered as the 2016 event was dedicated to him and the legacy he left on Callawassie Island.
The Friends of Callawassie Island, Inc. (FOCI), the island’s charitable foundation in 2016 raised over $10,000 for Lowcountry charities February 4, 5, and 6 when The Callawassie Players staged the musical comedy-mystery “And Then There Were…Not So Many.” The original 7 act script, penned and directed by Callawassie Island’s own playwright Elaine Diaz, unfolds a funny yet intriguing tale of petty jealousies, past indiscretions, and present day pathologies among the suspicious characters. A cast and crew of nearly 30 fellow residents brought to life this campy melodrama with costumes, live music, singing, dancing and hilarious escapades. The three sold out evening performances raised the roof and brought down the house, all for a worthy cause!
