Dear Friends of the Lowcountry Speaker Series:

Currently, South Carolina recommends mass gathering limits to less than 250 people, but I am optimistic that, in the coming months, these guidelines will become less restrictive. I am, therefore, thrilled to announce that the previously postponed April 7, 2020 lecture with Robert O’Neill has been rescheduled for Thursday, March 18, 2021 at the Sea Pines Resort.

Because the venue has been upgraded to the iconic Harbour Town Clubhouse Champions Ballroom, existing subscribers and individual ticket holders will be given the option to choose between one of two separate Robert O’Neill lecture seatings: 4:00 PM or 7:30 PM.

My team stands ready to help identify and assign your new comparable, or upgraded, seats. Once the re-seating has been finalized, tickets for new guests will go on sale starting on November 25, 2020. As a special addition to the program, our Sea Pines partner will also offer an exclusive 6:00 PM dinner with Robert O’Neill in the Harbour Town Clubhouse Heritage Room. Stay tuned for information on how to purchase these limited availability tickets.

In the meantime, our doors remain open, and the Lowcountry Speaker Series will continue hosting virtual lectures this fall. COVID-19 and social justice have dominated the global narrative, so our first two events will feature the 23rd Commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Dr. Scott Gottlieb, and the British photographer, Platon.

I thank you for your incredible patience and loyalty and look forward to continuing to provide the community a forum for intellectual enrichment and inspiration.

Very sincerely,

James Lamar
