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.

TICKETS

Purchasing an individual ticket or sponsorship supports the Reverse Selfie Project. For students who have never lived without technology at their fingertips, we are giving them a moment of stillness. This is where the difficult virtue of practice, concentration, discipline, wrestling with the ego, and revision come into practice.

Our goal is to foster a new generation of curious thinkers who play an active role in the world going on around them. By having the creative and critical means of analyzing our inner selves through poetry, we increase our capacity to know and care for ourselves; and we are empowered to contribute to our community, instead of depending on others for resources. 


Individual Ticket:
$125
