“It was more spectacular than the party at 12 Oaks in the movie Gone with the Wind!” raved Jay Weidner about last Saturday’s Lafayette Soiree at the home of Scott Sonoc and Marsha Williams. The fantastic CEO band from Atlanta kept everyone on the dance floor from their first song to their last. Even without hoop skirts, the Soiree was able to honor Beaufort’s naval history and raise substantial funds for the Historic Beaufort Foundation which will be used to stabilize the Verdier House and protect other endangered properties in Beaufort County. The evening was highlighted by an incredible fireworks display in honor of the 190th anniversary of General Marquis de Lafayette’s visit to Beaufort, which was also enjoyed by hundreds of people in the nearby Waterfront Park. Many thanks to Scott and Marsha and the hardworking Committee of the Soiree who made it all happen so beautifully and flawlessly!
