PEC’s 50th Anniversary Celebration – Farm-to-Fork Dinner, Auction, Social Sculpture
October 1, 2022 @ 5:00 pm – 11:00 pm
PEC is honored to return to the Oak Spring Garden Foundation’s Mellon Runway to celebrate our 50th anniversary and unveil our vision for the future as outlined in a new strategic plan. As a unique attraction for the 50th-anniversary celebration, world-renowned visual artist Elizabeth Turk and her team will lead an interactive social sculpture art project envisioned exclusively for PEC. The performances are timed to coincide with sunset, when 500 lit umbrellas symbolizing flora and fauna of the Piedmont, its pollinators and threats, open up as guests sway to the Bluegrass sounds of Grammy-nominated Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen. This living sculpture will follow a performance by world-class dancer and Orange County local Demetia Hopkins, accompanied by music created specially for the evening by Dr. Dena Jennings. The evening will culminate with a local farm-to-fork dinner under the stars. For tickets and sponsorship opportunities, visit pecva.org/50th-runway.
Regular – $350
Junior – $250
