MICAH GREEN / THE SUMTER ITEM

Ugly Christmas sweaters, elf costumes and more could be seen Thursday night at the inaugural Eat Drink & Be Ugly. The Young Professionals of Sumter organized the event to draw community members together while raising money for a good cause, Sumter Pregnancy Center. Ticket holders were encouraged to tour downtown beginning at J. O'Grady's and making stops at Great Southern Homes, Naomi & Warner, Coldwell Banker Commercial Cornerstone, Hyatt Place Downtown Sumter, Gaymon Gibson Group and C. Anthony's. Each attendee had the chance to eat snacks and sample 17 different types of beer and visit J O'Grady's After Hours karaoke bar.
