It is almost time for the Beaufort Historical Association’s annual Fall Fundraising Party! This year’s party will take place at the Aiken home at 2011 Front Street in Beaufort on October 12 at 6:30 p.m. The party will feature the artwork of Gosia Tojza, delicious food from the Beaufort Grocery Company, and classic jazz music performed by Blue Moon Jazz.
The Aiken home is owned by brothers, George and Hoovey Aiken and their wives, Debbie and Josephine. Nestled right on Front Street, the home has gorgeous views of Taylor’s Creek and Carrot Island. If you’re lucky enough, you may catch a glimpse of wild horses on the island. It has a beautiful yard with a spacious porch and backyard, as well as gorgeous live oak trees that have been uniquely shaped from storms and winds over the years.
Not only will guests get to mingle at a beautiful home, but they will also be surrounded by beautiful art. Gosia Tojza will be this year’s Fall Party featured artist. Gosia has been one of the best-selling artists in the Mattie King Davis Art Gallery since she moved to North Carolina on her boat in 2016. Her artwork is just like her personality, fun and full of life.
