Good Together, a Jeffersonian Dinner Fundraiser (April 26, 2018)
Good Together is based on a tradition started by Thomas Jefferson at Monticello that inspires transformational conversation and connection: A Jeffersonian Dinner. Imagine being invited to a dinner in 1819 at Monticello, the elegant Virginia home of Thomas Jefferson—president, scientist, farmer, connoisseur, scholar, and author of the Declaration of Independence. Around his table, you’d encounter some of the leading spirits of the age—men and women steeped in politics, literature, the arts, the sciences, theology, and history—all of whom were engaged citizens, eager to share and debate ideas that would shape the future of their young nation.
At Good Together on April 26, locals from a variety of backgrounds will gather to dine and discuss: How can we shape the future of the Triangle? How can everyday people rise up and tackle our community’s biggest issues through service and compassion? Guests will enjoy a delicious meal and dessert served up by award-winning Eschelon Experiences chef Matt Lowery, complete with wine and beer options. Estimated Attendees: 200 Sponsorship Package available here.
