An unbelievably HUGE thank you goes out to the folks at Carolina One Real Estate (as well as their little ones) for taking the time to create this adorable and heartfelt video. We hope you will share it with your friends and families.
Thousands of Charleston area residents brought in their knives to be sharpened at The Coastal Cupboard’s Semi Annual Charity Knife Sharpening Event to raise money for the Charleston Basket Brigade. For just $1 per knife, guests got their knives sharpened at the store from October 30th through November 2nd which raised $4,002.00 for this year’s effort.
Pitner said, “We had an overwhelming response for the Charity Knife Sharpening this year; it was awesome to see crowds of people lined up to sharpen their knives for such a great cause. We raised double the amount of money for the brigade this year!”
This is the third year that the Charleston Basket Brigade has been a beneficiary of The Coastal Cupboard Charity Knife Sharpening Event. Their support is invaluable to us and 133 families will enjoy a Thanksgiving meal thanks to their donation.
Guests not only got their knives sharpened, but enjoyed knife skills demonstrations and shopped specials on cutlery sets and knife sharpeners, and knife gadgets. Doc Crombie and Jimmy Hagood also came out to the event to keep everyone’s belly full and served free samples of their specialty sauces on food hot off of the Big Green Egg. A portion of the proceeds from Jimmy Hagood and Doc Crombie’s BBQ sauce sales that weekend will also benefit the CBB.
The Charleston Basket Brigade wants to thank everyone who came out to get their knives sharpened and support this amazing event as well as the Carolina One agents and employees who organized and orchestrated the event; especially Patti Vick and Marty Belk. Ladies, this event would have not been such a huge success without your help!
The Charleston Basket Brigade’s motto is “When a community comes together, magic happens” and this not only applies to those who donate or volunteer their time, but also to the local businesses and publications who rally around to support such an amazing cause.
Not only did this weekend’s Charity Knife Sharpening Event at The Coastal Cupboard raise an astounding $4,002 which is the largest turn out to date, but Mount Pleasant Magazine recently featured the Charleston Basket Brigade in their November/December issue.

Co-Founders of the Basket Brigade, Michelle Scarafile and Pam Hartley believe in the magic of delivering all the ingredients for a full Thanksgiving meal. Pam says “We want to provide an opportunity for families to cook a meal together, to sit around their table and be grateful on Thanksgiving Day.”
Join us this year to reach our goal of feeding 3,300 local families.
