Historic Camden hosted the inaugural Revel, presented by OceanaGold-Haile Operation, on Saturday, March 10 at the Historic Kershaw-Cornwallis House and Garden on the grounds of the Revolutionary War Park in Camden. S.C. Rep. Laurie Slade Funderburk was the honorary chair for the new event.

“We are excited to have raised more than $30,000 to support the preservation of our history,” Historic Camden Executive Director Halie Brazier said. “We are grateful for our sponsors OceanaGold/Haile Operation, AT&T, Black River Electric Co-Op, Duke Energy, Concrete Supply Co., Sandhills Medical Foundation, and all those who purchased tables.”

More than 200 Revel guests enjoyed an evening of merriment with a backcountry Colonial flair complete with décor, craft cocktails and artisanal heavy hors d’oeuvres inspired by the period. Guests were greeted in period-style with a sip of a Colonial recipe rum punch and small bites while being amused by the Randy Lucas Trio and an exhibition by the Camden Assembly of English Country Dancers. In the garden, a tent under the stars featured a cover band, The Items, a full open bar, a heavy hors d’oeuvres buffet, and a silent auction of original artwork. The hearty buffet prepared by Catery on Broad included a delightful, modern take on Colonial-era fare with specialty sausages, a savory pie station, and “revolutionary” desserts.

Planned to be an annual event, the Revel benefits Historic Camden’s mission to protect, preserve, and celebrate Camden’s extraordinary Colonial and Revolutionary War.

“We can’t wait to celebrate Historic Camden again with our friends and supporters next year,” Brazier said.
