Winyah Chapter members kicked up their heels recently as world renowned musical talent, Gracie and Lacy, took the stage at Winyah's 1920 SPEAKEASY in the DeBordieu Ballroom at Pawleys Island, SC. In addition to the 20's music presented, members and their guests took a quick Charleston dance lesson, browsed a silent auction and enjoyed lunch prepared by DeBordieu Executive Chef, Brian Hayes.
