Two Parties for the Price of One

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 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 or by calling (843) 722-2996 x235
