April 7, 2017

The Party: On a beautiful afternoon, attendees headed to the Governor Thomas Bennett House for the sixth annual Mary Ramsay Civic Award Luncheon honoring Mr. Joseph H. McGee and Mrs. Evelyn McGee for their philanthropic work in the community. Before the presentation, guests mingled and sipped on wine beneath grand oaks in the lush garden. Salthouse Catering served a delectable lunch of chilled corn bisque and pan-seared local fish over risotto at elegant tables decked with springtime floral and citrus centerpieces. Following the meal, president of the board of directors William Medich commenced the ceremony with a speech before Paula Robison granted the McGee’s with the distinguished award.

The Highlight: A video montage of family and friends offering congratulatory sentiments, including clips from Yo-Yo Ma, Tom Brokaw, and Jane Pauley

Overheard: “It’s truly incredible what they’ve accomplished together!”
