7th Annual Bountiful Brunch

on Friday, 09 June 2017. Posted in PDLT Events

The date for the 7th Annual Bountiful Brunch is Sunday, November 5th and will be held at Oak Ridge Farm.  Our host, Ricky Coxe along with their family will be sharing with us their custom farmhouse and gorgeous surrounding property.  Oak Ridge Farm is located just off Pocket Road in Darlington.

While much of the experience will remain the same from years past, we continue to add to the farm to table experience.  The brunch will again begin at noon with a gathering on the porches and the five course seated meal will commence promptly at 1:00pm on the front lawn.  Of course, the menu will continue to feature locally-sourced and produced items with professionally paired wines.  We are fortunate enough to be able to call upon many of the same food sources as in prior years, though our work with local growers and purveyors has expanded our ingredient list considerably!  We look forward to sharing our diverse agricultural bounty in the Pee Dee Region and wine pairings with you and our guests.

Our sponsors have been invaluable in making the event a grand success, creating the buzz that has made the Bountiful Brunch Benefit a “must” on the Pee Dee social calendar.  We have sold out every year within a week of invitations being mailed to all current PDLT Members and we expect 2017 to be our most successful year financially.  Our ticket sales to PDLT Members help cover the costs of the event and our sponsors are the main source of our net revenue from this exciting fundraiser.  Although sponsorships closed September 25th, we invite you to sign up as a sponsor for next year to guarantee your tickets for the 2018 Bountiful Brunch!  Please contact Lyles Cooper Lyles, PDLT Director of Education and Outreach, to inquire about available sponsorship opportunties in the future by calling 843.250.8175 or via email This email address is being protected from spambots.

Invitations were mailed to all current PDLT annual members the week of October 1st.  Please return your response card immediately, as space is very limited.  Upon receipt of response cards in order of post date, we will send confirmation emails within 1 business day.  Upon selling out of seats, we will start a waiting list with priority based on Membership level, past support and date response was mailed.  Thank you for your patience and understanding while we do our best to accomodate everyone that wants to support this exciting fundraiser.
