Angel Oak Award

The Angel Oak Award was established by the Kiawah-Seabrook Exchange Club in 2012 to recognize a volunteer who has made an outstanding contribution to the people or quality of life of Johns Island, Wadmalaw Island, Kiawah Island, and/or Seabrook Island. As a part of the award, the Exchange Club makes a $5000 donation to a local charitable organization or organizations of the recipient’s choice. The recipient will receive a remembrance and his or her name will be inscribed on the Angel Oak Permanent Trophy.

The award is recognized at the annual Angel Oak Awards Banquet at the Seabrook Island Club that includes a live band, guest speaker, wonderful meal and, best of all, great fellowship with Club members and their guests totaling over 150 people.

Any South Carolina resident performing volunteer services related to our local islands’ activities is eligible for the award. The award focuses on service to the target communities and, while service over time is considered, current year contributions are essential. Again, this award is for volunteer service to the people of the islands and not for those professionals who may also provide invaluable services.
