    The Third Annual Bluffton Ball Presented by Covert Aire will be Saturday, February 17, 2018 at Pinckney Hall in Sun City. The Bluffton Ball is the only signature event of its kind in Bluffton, South Carolina. A yearly celebration of Bluffton's best, the ball is for community members and leaders. At the Bluffton Ball we honor local businesses and individuals who have contributed to our wonderful Bluffton Community by presenting them with the Bluffton Business Awards.
    The Bluffton Business Awards is an initiative of the Bluffton Chamber of Commerce to recognize Businesses and Community Members who have made substantial contributions to the Greater Bluffton Community. Honorees do not have to be a Chamber of Commerce Member, they only need to live, work, or influence areas such as 29909, 29910, 29927, or 29936.
