Heart of a Heritage 2014

Benefit Dinner planned in Beverly

Enjoy a romantic, home-cooked dinner at the Beverly Heritage Center’s Heart of a Heritage event Saturday, February 8. This annual Valentine’s Day celebration features a three-course meal, and the opening of a new rotating exhibit, “The Homes of Beverly.”

“Bring your sweetheart or friends to enjoy the awesome grilled tenderloin dinner in a unique venue,” said Darryl DeGripp, executive director. “This year, you can see some of our facility improvements, including the new tile floor and technology upgrades, that fundraisers like Heart of a Heritage make possible for the Beverly Heritage Center.”

Dinner will begin with hors d’oeuvres including baked brie and berry blue cheese spread served with assorted crackers, field greens salad with toppings, and home-baked bread with flavored butters. The entrée course, served about 7 p.m., will feature seasoned grilled beef tenderloin from Campbell’s Market, scalloped potatoes, sweet and savory kale, and green bean casserole. Assorted desserts and chocolates will complete the evening, along with coffee, tea, and wine.

The new, rotating "Homes of Beverly" exhibit will have photographs, archaeological artifacts, and other ephemera on display. This exhibit showcases Beverly's local history throughout time, and will include artifacts that were found on the archaeological excavation held at the Collett House in October. Alison Thornton, an AFHA AmeriCorps member, led the excavation and designed the exhibit.

Reservations are needed for Heart of a Heritage, with tickets available for $45 per individual, or $85 per couple. All proceeds from this popular fundraising event support ongoing programs and continued development of the Beverly Heritage Center.
