On December 1st,
“Presidential Poetry: The Language of Leadership” will bring together local celebrities to read excerpts from presidential speeches, inaugural poems, personal correspondence and more. This inaugural event is a fundraiser for “The Reverse Selfie Project.”
Guests will enjoy a unique menu of former president’s favorite foods (with a twist) by Amelia’s chef Kevin Snell.
Artisan Fine Wine and Spirits will provide wine and champagne, and The Summit Club’s Sarah Elliott will shake up “sippies” inspired by FDR’s recipes. Guests will also have the opportunity to compose a poem on the topic of leadership and perform their verse live with the Shelby Eicher Jazz Trio.
