Farm-to-Table Dinner

September 16, 2023 @ 5:30 pm 11:00 pm

PEC’s annual farm-to-table dinner & paddle raise will take place at historic Oakwood Farm, where Mrs. Caroline Collomb will host us for cocktails, a farm-to-table dinner, and dancing to DJ Domingo — all with and the most spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Over the centuries, Oakwood has hosted many luminaries, including the Marquis de Lafayette and the Duke of Windsor, and in 1922, was the location of the first Virginia Gold Cup race.
