The Legend Series Seven @ Evergreen Cemetery


The seventh event in The Legend Series took place Saturday, October 19th at Evergreen Cemetery on the night of a full moon.

Upon arrival, guests experienced an interpretive historical tour of the cemetery organized by the Jacksonville Historical Society.

Courses were prepared by Chef Waylon Rivers from Black Sheep; Chef Tom Gray of Moxie Kitchen + Cocktails; Chef Scotty Schwartz of 29 South; Chef Thomas Tolxdorf of The Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island; and Chefs Karey Raulerson and Brian Siebenschuh of Restaurant Orsay.

All wines were generously donated by Republic National.

Guests were entertained by Robin Rutenberg + Naarah Strokosch who played classic songs, post-modern arrangements and improvised sounds crafted specifically for the event.

Horse-drawn carriages took guests on a nighttime tour of the cemetery at the conclusion of the event.
