A Harp For The Heart
Saturday, February 8, 2020 @ 5:30 pm$125
A perfect Valentine evening of culinary delights with music by elegant harpist Carroll Ownbey awaits you. Entering the lovely Ramble home of Rose and Jon Lawrie, just before a winter sunset, you will be greeted with a Vanderbilt Martini, a glass of wine, or a refreshing spritzer as you unwind to soft jazz. Be pampered and enjoy hors d’oeuvres, while sitting by a crackling fire, followed by a 5-course, elegant sit-down candlelight dinner of Chicken Marsala or Honey Pecan Crusted Salmon or a vegetarian selection, prepared “lovingly” by local Kim Linville of Linville Catering Company. Linville was the first home catering company in Asheville/Hendersonville. Kim’s grandmother Evelyn Anderson started the company in the early 1940’s. Entrees are accompanied by five delicious side dishes including soup and salad.
After dinner, settle into the cozy living room by a fire, with a hot beverage or liqueur, along with a strawberry trifle dessert while being entertained by harpist Carroll Ownbey. Carroll, who lives in Western North Carolina, has been playing professionally for over 30 years. One of her favorite memories was accompanying a group in Carnegie Hall. Her more famous audiences include Betty White and Elizabeth Dole. Carroll is an original member of the Blue Ridge Harp Ensemble, which is comprised of four concert harps and other professional harpists. Carroll will be performing famous love songs to warm anyone’s heart. Win a special door prize, if luck is with you; everyone, though, will be gifted a book of poems and sonnets, chocolate from The Chocolate Fetish, and a small bouquet of flowers.
Watch out! You just might be struck by Cupid’s arrow! Don’t miss this intimate, heartfelt affair; truly an evening to remember!
