Two parties for the price of one – that’s what you get at the Charleston Museum’s
“AN EVENING UNDER THE STARS” on Friday, April 25th. And what a price! $80 (for non-members), for two cocktail parties, elegant dinner stations with ALL DRINKS INCLUDED and dancing to the music of Breezin’. Where else can you find such a deal for an elegant night on the town in Charleston?
The evening, hosted by the Museum’s FANS, begins at 6:15 p.m.at the Joseph Manigault House, a federal-style National Landmark House and garden across the street from the Museum. Guests will enjoy a signature cocktail or wine with hors d’oeuvres, a tour of the house and live music by David Archer.
Then the party moves on to the recently redesigned Museum courtyard for a glittering evening of drinks, elegant food, dance music with vocalist, and a silent and live auction.
Lowcountry Eats will provide a host of scrumptious Southern treats, including a seafood raw bar and a quail and grits station. A Southern Bartender will be serving up the Lowcountry’s favorite drinks – just take your pick.
Charity auctioneer extraordinaire Doug Warner will entertain guests with a spirited live auction featuring items and packages sure to tempt one and all. A silent auction precedes the live one. A list of auction items will be posted at the Museum website on April 8th.
Proceeds from the evening go to a very worthy cause: benefiting educational programs and restoration work at the Museum’s Dill Sanctuary on the Stono River on James Island.
All-inclusive tickets are $75/members, $80/non-members. Advanced registration is requested. Register online through the calendar of events at www.charlestonmuseum.org or by calling (843) 722-2996 x235
