FeastivALL is FestivALL's annual fundraiser which began in February 2013. This dinner and silent auction has raised thousands of dollars in support of FestivALL's mission and was a key part of the initial success and funding of FestivALL Fall. Each year, FeastivALL has welcomed a sell-out crowd to Berry Hills Country Club.
This year we will host the 6th FeastivALL at Berry Hills Country Club with a gourmet 5-course meal curated by chef Paul Smith and Heath Ax, wine & beer pairings chosen by experts Rich Ireland and John Brown, live entertainment by local musicians and actors, and a silent auction. The event will be hosted by Larry Groce who is the host and creative director of Mountain Stage and the previous director of FestivALL.
The fundraiser is centered around food and drink which includes an epic battle of libations. At each course attendees are presented with a beer and wine pairing, and after the course is over diners vote on their favorite. In 2017 wine took the lead for a 3-2 victory! Will beer be able to tie it up this year?
In addition to this festive night of fun and food, FeastivALL offers a silent auction which includes items such as vacation getaways, dining experiences, local and regional performing arts packages, luxury items, outdoor adventure packages, jewelry, handcrafted works, art and more. Other entertainment rounds out the evening which has previously included guests from Charleston Light Opera Guild, pianist Bob Thompson, Michael Lipton and Vinyl Village.
In the true spirit of FestivALL, get ready to experience a little bit of it ALL!
