A Celebration of Summer at The Duke Mansion August 17

Start the weekend right at The Duke Mansion on Friday, August 17. From
5:30 to 7 pm, The Mansion will host a fun, casual evening featuring
cocktails from a cash bar (but we can take credit cards, too) and
snacks from Executive Chef Harrison Booth. Enjoy an inexpensive night
out in The Mansion's glorious gardens, or inside The Mansion if the
weather is unkind.

Reservations required. Make yours by calling 704/714-4445 or email
. Reserve early for this popular event -- The Mansion's last cocktail
evening filled up fast.

The Duke Mansion, at 400 Hermitage Road in the Myers Park area of
Charlotte, is a non-profit bed-and-breakfast inn and meeting place.
Built in 1915, The Mansion is listed on the National Register of
Historic Places. In 1919, it was purchased by James B. "Buck" Duke and
tripled to its current size of 32,000 square feet. Many of Duke's
lasting legacies, including Duke Power Company, Duke University and
The Duke Endowment, originated at The Duke Mansion. To find out more
or book an overnight stay, wedding, or event, see
