As Daniel Island's newest destination for great food, beer and music, Dockery's looks forward to forging a strong commitment to the local community through ongoing charitable partnerships. Reflecting Dockery's mission to provide a stage for local singers and songwriters, the restaurant donated $7,000 in proceeds raised from a series of opening events to musically focused non-profits Carolina Studios and the Charleston Music Battery.
"We are very grateful for the support of the Dockery's team," says Carolina Studios chairman and Hootie and the Blowfish lead guitarist Mark Bryan. "Every penny of the donation goes toward fostering a safe environment for Charleston youth with initiatives that allow them to explore musical expression in a meaningful way."
Adds Kris Manning, co-founder of the Charleston Music Battery, "These funds give us the chance to provide even more kids with the facilities, support and performance opportunities to help them achieve their goals."
Dockery's next fundraiser for The Music Battery is this St. Patrick's Day, March 17 from 2-5pm at Dockery's on Daniel Island. The Music Battery will perform at 2:00 pm and the Kabuki Love Machine will play from 2:30 - 5:00 pm. A portion of all beer sales from Dockery's will be donated to The Music Battery.
Dockery's plans to continue supporting the missions of Carolina Studios and Charleston Music Battery, while also partnering with other charitable organizations in the Charleston area.
