This year’s Knight of Honor will be held September 28, 2018
6:30 in the evening
701 Whaley St, Columbia, SC 29201

Lords and ladies will take a step back in time at this one-of-a-kind event. Guests will be transported to a renaissance village. Medieval-fare will delight as guests travel to various artisans and entertainers, including a fire-breather, jousting demonstrations, and medieval-dance lessons. Libations will be generously poured throughout the evening at the open bar with beer at the Cottontown Tavern, wine provided by Josh Sellers, and specialty cocktails using Redemption Whiskey curated by the one and only Kristian Neimi of Bourbon.

This unique event elevates stories of compassionate service and re-defines what it means to be a knight in the 21st century. Police and citizen heroes will be recognized for excellence in community service and partnership statewide.

Funds raised through Knight of Honor benefit the mission and work of Serve & Connect. We focus on building community resilience and well-being through police and community partnerships. We seek to end divisiveness through connections. We believe when we work together, we improve lives.
