Charles Taylor dinner

You’re invited!!

Dear Friend,

I would like to extend a personal invitation for you and your family to attend the 23rd annual Charles Taylor Holiday Dinner. This year, United States Presidential candidate and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee will be the keynote speaker. The 23rd annual Charles Taylor Holiday Dinner is one of the largest and longest-running political dinners in North Carolina. Governor Huckabee will be honored, along with many other state and local elected officials. Congressman Taylor is the longest serving Republican U.S. Representative in Western North Carolina history.

The 23rd annual Charles Taylor Holiday Dinner will be held at 7 p.m. Saturday, December 19 at the Expo Center at the Crown Plaza Resort in Asheville. I would also like to invite you to attend a separate, private reception beginning at 5:30 p.m. in the Mt. Mitchell Suite, where you will get an opportunity to meet and speak with Governor Huckabee, as well as have your picture made.

Tickets for the 23rd annual Charles Taylor Holiday Dinner are $60 per person. If you would like to attend the private reception to meet the candidates, tickets are $150 per person and include admission to the dinner as well. Checks should be made out to:

“Charles Taylor Holiday Dinner” and mailed to:

P.O. Box 7587

Asheville, NC   28802

For more information please contact Trish Smothers at (828) 243-2187 or My family and I have been hosting these dinners for more than two decades because we believe it is imperative that Western North Carolina residents have an opportunity to hear from leading Gubernatorial, Congressional and Presidential candidates. Come hear the program, see old friends and let me see you again!
