& BENEFACTORS

Saturday, October 12, 6:30 - 9:30 p.m.

HELP CHILDREN HEAL FROM ABUSE

Every penny of the nearly $120,000 raised during the past two years, and all proceeds this year, are used to pay the Lincoln County Coalition Against Child Abuse & Child Advocacy Center ("CAC") therapists, pediatricians, Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANE), and family  advocates, who provide counseling, medical exams, and support as the case moves through the justice system. Because of your generosity, the CAC can provide these services free to victims and their families.  

THE PERFECT DATE NIGHT OR GROUP OUTING UNDER THE STARS.

INDULGE YOUR TASTES

Steps after registering, Crafted Southern Speakeasy will greet you with a welcome cocktail.

Throughout the evening, allow brand ambassadors from Brown-Forman, Southern Grace Distilleries, and Outer Banks Distilling to introduce you to the nuances and aromas of featured spirits, or savor a perfectly poured draft beer from D9 Brewing and Ghostface Brewing. Sample foods and artisan desserts freshly prepared by award-winning and locally famous restaurants, chefs, caterers, and bakers. A growing list of participants includes: Midwood Smokehouse, Viva Chicken Huntersville, Chillin & Grillin, Three Tiers for Cakes, Cake Couture, Savory Plum Bistro & Cafe, Safari Miles, Mango Leaf Chef Catering, Covered in Chocolate, and Meg's Macs.

PREMIUM CIGARS

image5

Enjoy your favorite cigar fireside, or let an expert from Burners Cigar Co. select the body, flavor, and strength that will appeal to all, from the reluctant or occasional smoker, and the enthusiast or aficionado. 


Because cigars are enjoyed outdoors, the virtually smoke-free environment is ideal for those who are concerned about the presence of cigars.


Pipe smokers, feel free to bring your own.
