On the evening of Aug. 25, the Dining Room at Woodlands Mansion will open for a unique charity dining event, “Memories at the Mansion,” benefiting Chase After a Cure. Former Woodlands’ staff, executive chef Nate Whiting, sommelier Stephane Peltier and pianist Tom Bailey, will reunite in the Dining Room they helped make world famous.
"We are excited to have these old friends return to the mansion to create a true culinary experience on behalf of such a worthy cause," said Tom Limehouse, owner of Woodlands Mansion.
Whiting, the executive chef at Tristan, will prepare a five-course meal incorporating some of the classic dishes he created during his years at The Dining Room at Woodlands Resort and Inn. A pre-dinner wine tasting and perfect pairing for the dinner menu will be created by Peltier, owner of Accent on Wine in Summerville.
“Chase After a Cure is honored to be a part of such an extraordinary event,” said Whitney Ringler founder of Chase After a Cure.
The Mobil Five-Star, AAA Five Diamond Award winning Woodlands Resort & Inn closed in September 2012 and was sold to Limehouse. The property was recently reopened as Woodlands Mansion with a new business model. The 1906 Greek revival 18-bedroom mansion and its 11 acres are available for private events and overnight accommodations.
Tickets are $500 per person. Seating will be limited to 60 donors. Tickets may be purchased online at www.memoriesatthemansion.com.
