Gadsden St. Fire

Gadsden St., Charleston, S.C.
It is always shocking to see the damage a house fire can do to these grand old homes. What a sad loss. According to the Post & Courier article twelve people were displaced from their apartments.

Searching for more details I discovered that Twenty Six Divine is holding a Gadsden St. Fire Relief Party on Sunday afternoon for a few of the residents.

Gadsden Street Fire Relief Party 

When: Sun., June 1, 4-8 p.m.
Phone: (843) 754-8899
Price: $20
Katie Seley and Robert Gibb lost their home and all of their belongings in the Gadsden Street Fire that occurred on May 11. Seley is a longtime employee at Twenty Six Divine, so to help the couple rebuild their lives, the owners of Twenty Six Divine are pulling the community together to throw a party that will raise funds for Seley and Gibb. Enjoy braised pork and chicken tacos, pineapple-jalapeno mimosas, pastries, libations from The Recovery Room, music by Moonlight Ale, and art from Alicia Penn. All proceeds go to the couple.


  1. You always hate to see it happen. Looks like this one was lovely.

  2. It's hard to imagine what it feels like to have your house and belongings destroyed by fire. It happened to a co-worker once and it made me realize how horrible such a loss can be. At least nobody was hurt in the fire.


Leave me a comment. They make me strong.
