The South Eastern Wildlife and Environment Education Association has tickets on sale for its annual event that brings the local music and local oysters together.

The fundraiser supports SEWEE's environmental education programs and special projects to support the national wildlife refuges and national forest of coastal South Carolina.

The seventh annual Music and Oysters for Wildlife event will be 2-6 p.m. Jan. 21. The Sewee Outpost will host the event behind its location at 4853 U.S. Highway 17 in Awendaw.

Mark Bryan, Hank Futch and Doug Jones will return with Occasional Milkshake, and Danielle Howle with Firework Show, Red Dog Ramblers, Clay Rice and Ed Hunnicutt have joined the music list for this year. The Lincoln Middle/High School Steel Band will open the event.

Tickets to the rain-or-shine event include the music and all-you-can-eat oysters. There will be 6,000 square feet of tents to keep everyone warm and dry.

Advance adult tickets are $35 ($40 the day of the event), and children under 12 are free. Tickets can be purchased through the association's website at or at the Sewee Outpost. There will be barbecue, burgers and hot dogs for sale along with beer, wine and sodas. Guests should bring oyster knives and gloves and chairs to use to enjoy the music.

Silent auction items include nature tours, jewelry, art and services.
