Much of Charleston, South Carolina’s charm can be attributed to its rich history. Each year, the city welcomes new and returning visitors with open arms, offering a variety of ways in which to see and learn about the many changes it has seen through the years. The Charleston Tour Association’s participating companies comprises certified tour guides who are committed to sharing the authentic history of Charleston. This year, the CTA has partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Lowcountry for its annual “Tourism Day.” On Saturday, December 2, 2023, the various members of Charleston’s Tour Association committed to sharing a portion of their proceeds from the day with the local nonprofit organization, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Lowcountry. BBBSL believes that inherent in every child is incredible potential. Their focus is to make meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”) ages 7 through young adulthood in Charleston, Dorchester, and Berkeley counties. Their mission is to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth in the Lowcountry. For each tour purchased on December 2 through a participating tour group, guide, or historical destination, 10% of the proceeds will go directly to Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Lowcountry. Palmetto Carriage Works is one of the participating members in Charleston’s Tourism Day. To book a tour, click here. Book ahead of time or buy tickets on the day of the tour; either way, BBBSL benefits.
