Melinda Swift, owner of the Olde Town Inn, is hosting the upcoming Olde Town Inn Peach Gala to be held on Friday, July 7 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Olde Town Inn. Parking is located behind the Inn at 410 4th Street, Augusta, GA 30901.
This Gala is being held in celebration of Melinda's 7 years of Inn ownership in addition to the Inn’s 153rd anniversary. Each of the Inn's five rooms are being dedicated to one of five local women of Augusta history. Those women are Butterfly McQueen, Celia DeLaigle, Marion Hollins, Agnes Holliman, and Princess Augusta.
With sponsor support, Melinda will be raising funds to house breast cancer patients at her Inn while they receive treatment. Melinda is a recent breast cancer survivor, so this event is very special to her personally. In addition to this, she will be awarding a $500 scholarship to a student at Davidson Fine Arts.
I have been chosen to curate this art show and sale, and I can't express my gratitude and excitement at this opportunity! Dipping my toe in the sea of art show curating is scary but thrilling and I look forward to helping local artists find new collectors at this special art buying event.
Tickets for the Gala are $40 per person. Victorian dress is encouraged but not mandatory.
