Art and Cocktails by the Pool

when: Oct. 13, 2013

The Joel Lane Museum House, “The Birthplace of Raleigh,” sponsored its first “Art and Cocktails by the Pool” fundraiser on Sunday, October 13, 2013 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm with a rain date of Sunday, October 20. It took place by the pool of a private home in the Five Points area of Raleigh. Address was given to ticket purchasers upon confirmation of purchase. Admission was $75 per person. Advanced purchase strongly suggested either by logging on to Eventbrite.com by clicking here, phoning 919-833-3431 with MasterCard or Visa, or sending a check to PO Box 10884, Raleigh NC 27605. Tickets were non-refundable unless we had to cancel the event.

Colonel Lane was a founding father of North Carolina’s capital city and an officer in the Wake County militia during the American Revolutionary War. Guests toasted his contributions to the founding of the capital city, Raleigh, at the current location of his home that was built in 1769 and is operated as a house museum.

This posh event included hors d’oeuvres and cocktails, as well as a silent auction of local artists’ work, a week in a cottage at Beaufort, NC, and two bottles of very fine wine. Participating artists included Larry Earley, Margaret Hill, Mike Hoyt, Marriott Little, Elizabeth Perry, David Pickel, Robbin Richardson, and Nora Shepard.

What visitors say

Thank you for touring us around the Joel Lane House. Our architecture and the way we live has come a long way throughout the years. You really gave us great information on what life was like back when Joel Lane was alive. They lived in very harsh conditions with no heat or air condition which would be very tough today. I appreciate all your help and time put in to tour us around the house.
