Through the old 18th century gates last Saturday evening came 300 elegantly attired Beaufortonians into a re-creation of a Paris market filled with street performers, sumptuous hors d’oeuvres and dreamy French desserts that looked like works of art. Then up past the gated entrance of the stunning historic home of Alison and Mark Guilloud, more French wine and champagne and chamber music charmed guests who wiled away the early hours eyeing the tempting offerings of the fabulous silent auction. When the moonlit night fell, the CEO Show Band from Atlanta took the stage and got everyone dancing and kept them dancing from beginning to end. It was a perfect night to honor Marquis de Lafayette’s historic visit and to be a Beaufortonian. Kudos to one and all who took part in this unforgettable evening!
