The Location

Charleston, South Carolina, is internationally acclaimed for its historic architecture, pristine beaches, and classic Southern hospitality. The beauty of tourist destinations, like Rainbow Row or The Battery, reaches far beyond the historic Holy City. Charleston is a charming seaside city with its own unique Lowcountry flair.


Downtown Charleston sits nestled between two rivers coming together to "form" the Atlantic Ocean, as locals are fond of saying. It is also the perfect spot to tuck in your polo, grab your sunscreen (and a friend to help apply), and explore the city with friends, old or new.


Charleston is known for its world-renowned historic district, but this gorgeous city is more than just a well-preserved museum. Charleston also boasts a vibrant nightlife, creative local experiences, world-class golf, and centuries-old cultivated scenery. There’s a reason Charleston has earned the title of the Best City in America from Travel + Leisure 6 years in a row, and this is your chance to find out why.


Members of The Group are invited to an exclusive Group retreat on the Carolina coast this May.  The chefs, musicians, and accommodations are nothing short of extraordinary.  This weekend getaway in a 5-star, downtown Charleston hotel will feature pampering, amenities and individually tailored preparations.

The Plan


Arrive Tuesday, Wednesday, or Friday, 5/3/24

Pick Your Day

If time permits, arrive a little early and unwind at Kiawah Island before the party gets under way midweek.

Cocktail Receptions & Dinner Parties

Dine with Friends

As the organizers of Just For Dinner we know what fine dining is all about, and the warm memories the experience should create.  Nightly cocktail receptions and dinners will bring new opportunities to meet and dine with your new friends.


Sail Around The Holy City

Tour the city aboard a yacht

Charleston is known as the Holy City because of the number of steeples visible from the ocean.  These steeples, one dating back to 1761, were the landmarks mariners used to navigate the harbor safely.  We want you to have the same experience and will host a luncheon aboard a private yacht as we see the city from the water.

Friday's Party

with Special Musical Guest

The Group is known for great events, and a spectacular party requires a world-glass band.  Join us as we dine and dance with one of the most well known, Grammy-nominated, pop bands from the 90's.  Fashion for the evening will be "Seersucker and Sundresses".


Saturday's Party

in a Historic Home

We will spend the evening at a lovely, on-premise, lifestyle party hosted in a private, historic home downtown. Mingle with your new friends, hit the dance floor, and let’s enjoy the live music, carefully blended cocktails, and each other’s company.

Sunday's Brunch

Dine al fresco

Don’t rush this morning; we know you had a late night.  Instead, take your time to get ready and we will be waiting to take you for a farewell brunch with your new friends.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
