Mark your calendars for the newest of Charity Circle's historic "caroling parties," Cocktails at Copper Ridge on Thursday, June 6 from 5-8 p.m., 3597 Betty Ford Rd.
Coined as a "Summer Social" where cocktails and tastings abound, the new event venue featuring a cedar-lined barn on a 17-acre horse farm will offer a picturesque setting to impeccably kick-off the season.
"Barely outside the city limits, Cocktails at Copper Ridge is the party I'm looking forward to for good summer fun and eats—nothing is better than a casual summer party," said Paula Leslie, Event Chair. "Charity Circle's hostesses are among the finest as they know their heartfelt efforts support our Rutherford County neighbors in need."
The featured cocktail is "The Copper," a cool mango and rum mix that is perfect for after work socializing while listening to the jazz talents of Ernest Newsom and enjoying tasty offerings prepared by Charity Circle ladies. The menu features beef tenderloin sliders, fruit and cheese skewers, homemade desserts, and more. Summer is here!
