Hampton Island Preserve, Mondavi Dinner
On the weekend of November 5, 2005, a celebration was held on Hampton Island Preserve to showcase 16 homesites available for purchase there. The festivities began on Friday, November 4, and continued through the weekend with hunting, fishing, and boating excursions among the activities. Hampton Island Executive Chef Mathew Roher excited and impressed guests with an exquisite menu both Friday and Saturday evening while wine aficionado Robert Mondavi, Jr. (Hampton Island Stewardship owner) paired personally selected wines to complement each course.
After dinner on Saturday, guests were treated to a private Songwriters in the Round concert with special guests Amy Grant, Vince Gill, Michael McDonald, and others. Proceeds were donated to The Lighthouse Family Retreat, an Atlanta-based organization that has organized numerous retreats for young victims of cancer and their families in the Southeast (www.lighthousefamilyretreat.org).
