Guess Who's Coming for Dinner

Will the mystery guest please stand...

Guess Who's Coming to Dinner was enjoyed by many attendees and had many entertaining and informative speakers who brought their stories to the Lake Gaston community. It's time as an active event is now over as we focus on other events. Thanks to all the speakers and attendees who made their event a success.

The creative, fun loving supporters of O'SAIL created the "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" as a series of social events including dinner with a special "surprise" guest speaker.  

O’Sail, the Organization to Support the Arts, Infrastructure and Learning for the Lake Gaston community, sponsored these dinners as fundraisers with all proceeds going to the fund to provide grants to support projects by nonprofit organizations that serve the Lake Gaston community. 

Thank you, again, for all your support!
