Toast of Darlington

on Wednesday, 28 September 2016. Posted in News, Local News

DARLINGTON –The 6th Annual Toast of Darlington presented by Genesis Healthcare, Mannheim Darlington, and the Greater Darlington Chamber of Commerce will be held on Oak Street in Darlington on October 6 from 6:30 to 9pm. One of the chamber’s four signature events, the Toast provides an eclectic and exclusive opportunity to its guests – to have an event featuring live music, food, refreshments, and fellowship in one of Darlington’s most beautiful and historic neighborhoods. “I love the concept,” says chamber director Norm Steadman, who will be experiencing the event for the first time. “What makes Darlington really special are the friends, neighbors, and communities that reside here. The Toast is a great way to spend some quality time with the people of Darlington on one of the city’s most interesting streets.”

The chamber board and event committee will decorate Oak Street with lights, cocktail tables, votive candles, and lovely centerpieces, transforming the historic street into an intimate dining venue for the evening. The popular jazz band “The Lizardmen” will appear -courtesy of Agape Hospice- to set the mood and provide the evening’s entertainment. The fine selection of entrees, desserts, and other delicacies will be provided by the Darlington County business and non-profit community; chamber members from all different types of organizations will arrive to prepare signature dishes for the guests at the event. Guests will be invited to vote for their favorite dishes and the winning dish will be presented with an award. “We have come up with a pretty interesting way to reward the best cook at the Toast this year,” says Steadman. “I can’t say exactly what we’re giving out, but the winning cooks will definitely love it!”

Tickets and sponsorships for the event are still available; tickets are $35 in advance and will be $40 at the door on the day of the event.
