The Thomas Wolfe Memorial, in partnership with the Renaissance Asheville Hotel, hosts the semi-annual fundraising event, “Dinner at the Old Kentucky Home.” The event recalls the nostalgic experience of turn-of-the-twentieth century boarding house dining with a meal reminiscent of the fare once served at Thomas Wolfe’s mother’s boarding house. Guests will be treated to a “sneak peek” of the opening of the new temporary exhibit on Julia Wolfe, exploring her dynamic life while featuring several articles of her original clothing. “Dinner at the Old Kentucky Home” is limited to twenty-two people at each of two seatings—6:00 pm and 8:00 p.m. 100 percent of the proceeds go to support the Thomas Wolfe Memorial thanks to the generosity of the Renaissance Asheville Hotel’s donation of the meal.
