Wild Side was created to honor the memory of SCELP’s founder, Jimmy Chandler. After Jimmy’s passing on August 7, 2010, his friends and colleagues wanted to come together and celebrate his life and vision. The initiative was auspicious and Wild Side has been SCELP’s signature event ever since. Check out last year's event!


We couldn't make this an event a success without the help of our amazing volunteers! If you're interested in volunteering at Wild Side, please contact Elizabeth at elizabeth@scelp.org or (843) 527-0078.
