Martinis at the Mansion July

The torrential rain didn't put a damper on the July Martinis at the Mansion event on July 15th, as soaked guests arrived to a packed house at Casimir's Lounge to kick off the Summer Prevention Program Week hosted by the Rape Crisis Center of the Coastal EmpireAttendees appeared on the South magazine Red Carpet ready to pose for their close up before dashing off to the bar to order a special five dollar martini and bid on the amazing silent auction prizes available. Kesha Gibson-Carter was the RCC host for the evening and presented information on the center's upcoming Art and Sole fundraiser along with details on the programs offered during the prevention week. Martinis at the Mansion is a networking event held on the third Wednesday of each month at 700 Drayton Restaurant inside of the Mansion on Forsyth Park. The next Martinis event will be held on August 19th at 5:30 pm and will highlight the Blueprint School of Pageantry, a finishing school that teaches youth to "Reign" in life with poise and purpose.
