The event was created to raise money to support local art programs for young talented artists, but also in hopes that it will encourage more local residents to frequent Charleston galleries and restaurants in summer months. It gives many a great reason to dress up and come downtown, it was so great to see so many people walking arond the historic district with CFADA stickers. I also have to mention some food finds of the night that really sticked out: Kelly Wilson’s chocolate lolliepop with bacon was increadible (Cypress), also Charleston Grill’s goatcheese cake with mint was to die for. I also loved the smooth and delicious soups prepared by FIG and McCrady’s, both chefs opted for fresh local vegetables in season to make their soups and they wowed us all!
This event requires tons of work, but brings the “Best of Charleston” together in one night and it is so worth!
