Step up to bar to support Historical Society

The youngest member of the family renowned for its art dynasty, Victoria Wyeth, has enjoyed a prodigious and multi-faceted career that has included working as a docent, lecturer, therapist, researcher and educator.

On Tuesday, April 14, the 36-year-old niece of Jamie Wyeth and granddaughter of the late Andrew Wyeth will show off another talent as she takes on the role of bar wench. She will be the headliner at a fundraiser for the Chadds Ford Historical Society (CFHS) being held at the Brandywine Brewing Company (BBC) in Greenville, De.

A host of enthusiastic guest bartenders, including Wyeth, will be collecting tips, all of which will go directly to the society.  The bartender who collects the most money will win a prize. Checks made out to CFHS will be accepted for those who want a tax deduction. To make sure your favorite bartender gets credit, put their name in the check’s memo line.

In addition, guests can enter a raffle to win a basket of cheer and other prizes. For supporters who have dinner, 10 percent of the bill will be donated by the BBC to the historical society; just make sure to tell the server that CFHS is the reason for your visit – not that you didn’t feel like cooking that night.

If you can’t join the festivities but want to support the efforts of CFHS – which include maintaining the historic John Chad House and the Barnes Brinton House – you can mail a check payable to: Chadds Ford Historical Society, P.O. Box 27, Chadds Ford, Pa., 19317. You can also make a donation online at

In addition to Wyeth, the guest bartenders will include Frank Mendenhall, Dick Gies, Mark Trozzi, Tom Singer, Heidi Murtagh, Patrick Brennan, Nadia Barakat, Lora Englehart, Lisa Vonderstuck, Kendal Reynolds, Emily Reichard, Kirk Reichard, Steve Liberace, and Sara Liberace.

The BBC Tavern & Grill is located at 4019 Kennett Pike, Greenville, De., 19807. It shares a shopping center with the Wine & Spirit Company of Greenville, the UPS Store, the Delaware Running Company, Wells Fargo, Walgreens and Quills Bunches.
