Tom Wolf was sworn into office in January of 2015 and has recently been reelected for his second term and chose Historic King Mansion as his celebration destination! Wolf not only wanted to celebrate his reelection but also wanted to show appreciation towards all of the campaign donors. This event was one of the biggest events Historic King Mansion has ever hosted; around 350 people got to experience such a fantastic celebration. Tom Wolf’s motto is “moving Pennsylvania forward,” and we were glad to help him “move forward” with his second term as governor.
Setting the Scene
Imagine the enormous tent stationed on the front lawn of the mansion. As you enter the smell of delicious food strikes your nose causing your mouth to water with anticipation of what’s to come. As you step inside, you become relaxed by ambient blue and white lighting that encompasses the tent. Looking up you notice beautiful chandeliers hung with care throughout the tent that adds a touch of elegance to the scene. As your eyes scan the room you notice blue and gold decor throughout the area representing Pennsylvania’s colors, tying the entire theme together.
The vendors that attended served items specific to Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania Cheese Guild was among some of the vendors that were in attendance and brought various amounts of delicious cheese to the table.
During this event, a lot of new menu items from The JDK Group were being served. Some of the new items included Salmon Poke Taco, BLT Slider, Quinoa Cauliflower Popper, and Stuffed Squash Blossoms.
The Salmon Poke Taco was divine, as soon as you took a bite the salmon flavor shined through with hints of smokiness. The BLT Slider was excellent, perfectly cooked bacon, crisp lettuce, and a sweet, red, juicy tomato to finish it off. The Quinoa Cauliflower Popper was perfect for vegans that attended and the Stuffed Squash Blossom were a hit with their delicious jalapeno cream cheese filling. JDK did a stellar job with the food and the decor!
A Special Thank You
Near the end of the event, Tom Wolf gave a short speech thanking all of his donors for the trust they have in him and also for their contributions to his campaign.
All of us at Historic King Mansion would like to say a big thank you, to Governor Tom Wolf and his team, for choosing Historic King Mansion as your venue for this special event. We were proud to be able to host your event and look forward to working with you in the future!
