The Stone Manor Inn, a boutique bed and breakfast in Lovettsville, VA, teamed up April 15th with generous restaurants and winemakers in Loudoun County, Virginia to launch “Global Taste,” a stellar brunch that attracted friends, old and new, of Global Camps Africa to eat, drink, and be caring for our kids.

Elizabeth van Houtte and Spencer Ault, the owners of Stone Manor, got very interested in GCA last year by attending our 2017 gala with Peter Yarrow at Arena Stage.  Beth and Spencer left that gala and told us, “We want to host something for Global Camps’ kids.” They weren’t kidding – the brunch they put on in their lovely country setting was truly something.

Spencer and Beth set a beautiful venue, with sparkling tables and sparkling wines.  Louise Lynn of Louise Lynn Floral Design donated eye-catching, peach-themed flower arrangements that lit up the tables.  And we thank these wonderful vendors for attracting our paying guests with their magnificent food and drink:

Crushed Cellars and Hiddencroft Vineyards in Loudoun County for their award-winning wines

Thaiverse Restaurant in Lovettsville, VA for Thai dumplings and Massaman beef curry

Trungo’s Restaurant in Leesburg, VA for pulled pork, cole slaw, and mac and cheese

West End Wine Bar & Pub in Purcellville, VA for Charcuterie and a vegetable platter

It’s A Piece of Cake, Loudoun County, VA for Lemon Cupcakes and Chocolate Truffles

Great Harvest Bread Co., Herndon, VA for its fresh breads

Stone Manor itself for Bacon-wrapped dates, East Ender Pie, Potato & Quinoa Florentine, Spencer’s incomparable scones, and Asparagus & Tomato Egg Savory

We recommend patronizing these wonderfully generous vendors.  We can’t thank them and Stone Manor Inn enough for their donations and their passion for our kids.  And big thanks to the over 40 people who contributed to GCA by attending and eating truffles and cupcakes!
