Wild Game Cook Off for Smith Endowment

Family and friends work together towards this endeavor

Miss Calista Lynn Smith's birthday is February 22, and with her passing into heaven in 2012, an educational endowment fund has been established. The inaugural fundraiser for the endowment was held on February 23 in the form of a wild game cook off at the Odum farm in western Colleton County. Family and friends of the Crosby / Smith family gathered for a silent and live auction despite a rainy end of a wet month. Congressional candidate Teddy Turner was on hand to lend support. A private jet ride to watch the Braves in Atlanta, and a skeet shot at Kinloch Plantation were on the auction. Plenty of hunting and fishing trips were sold, and the SCBT cooking team was judged to have the best wild game offerings - largely on the accolades of their venison tenderloin, that was soaked in secret ingredients! This will be an annual event until the first scholarship is awarded in 2017 for a Colleton County student heading to college. Lowcountry Outdoors would like to share this tribute from Mark Odum about Miss Smith.
