Miss A Columnist

Mollie Gabriel is the Charleston Editor for Miss A. She has always admired people who can focus on one thing. Raised in San Diego, she eagerly left for the University of Missouri's School of Journalism, on a whim transferred to Smith College in Massachusetts and graduated with a degree in Cultural Anthropology--but not before being introduced to Geography, which led to a certificate of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) from the University of Denver. In June she quit her job as a GIS Analyst in San Diego for her Navy Submariner's military orders to Charleston, and left for a road trip across America to see as many national parks, monuments and baseball games they could reach. Starting a blog about their adventures, she remembered how much she loved writing, and how much she missed exploring, interviewing and story telling. A big proponent of healthy and active lifestyles, Mollie can be found pounding pavement miles away from home training for a marathon, building mind and body strength in the yoga studio, or blending the produce section in her Vitamix. She instantly loved the class and sass of Charleston southerners and is completely addicted to shrimp and grits.

Ring In 2014 At Charleston’s Charitable New Year’s Ball

The countdown to 2014 has begun and celebrating the end of the year can be done in charitable fashion at the Charleston New Year’s Ball at Omar Shrine Temple in Mt. Pleasant. An open bar, savory buffets, music by Fowler’s Mustache, and a great cause is the perfect way to ring in a new year of giving back.

Benefiting the Friends of Durgapur Orphanage, funds will help provide children with clothing, shelter, food and education. Every twenty tickets sold helps sponsor one child for an entire year. The goal is to raise enough money to help 35 children in 2014.

Sponsored by Encore Music, Charleston Paddler, Drift Surf Shop and the Striped Pig Distillery, the party features an open bar, photo booth, a view of the fireworks over the water and a champagne toast as the ball drops live on a big screen. Mac ‘n cheese, baked potato and shrimp ‘n grits buffets will be served until the night ends, when guests will be sent home with a late night snack party favor.
