Hanging with Heroes {Event Recap}


On November 16, we had an epic time Hanging with the Heroes at Mason Preparatory School! We didn’t let the weather ruin our good time and held the event inside the gymnasium. Over 175 parents, kids {and grandparents too!} enjoyed all the fun activities this event had to offer – superheroes, local heroes and more!

The Venue

Thank you to Mason Preparatory School for opening their doors to host this fun, family event! Mason Prep School offers an education for grades Kindergarten-Eighth Grade and is so much more than “just a school.” Students at Mason Prep experience a vibrant learning community that prepares them for success in the classroom and beyond.

The Local Heroes

We are forever grateful for those who serve in our community to keep our families safe. A special thank you to Charleston Fire Department and Charleston County Sheriff’s Office for spending their morning with us and sharing their firetruck and police boat with us.
