What should I wear? 

We are inviting guests to wear "Lowcountry Cocktail." Keep the following in mind as you plan your outfit:

  • This event is outside at a farm so we ask that you dress accordingly (Wear spiked heals at your own risk.)

  • Our biggest rule is no t-shirts, no shorts, and no casual flip-flops.

  • More than anything, we invite you to enjoy the event. Many of our guests (and even faculty) look forward to the chance to wear cocktail attire. We invite them to wear it. Others are more comfortable with “business casual” (slacks and collared shirts). We are equally happy with their choice.

Can I bid for someone else? 

Many people have asked if they can purchase an auction item for a family member by proxy. This is a fundraiser for Cross Schools so we encourage whoever can be the highest bidder, however we ask that you be ready to pay on their behalf on the night of the event. 

Donating an item 


We are so grateful for all the businesses and families that have donated to Pearls to Pluff Mud this year. It's because of your generosity that we are able to have this event. If you would like to donate to the silent/ live auction please feel free to contact Kelly Williamson at
