Home > Event > FEB ACA Luncheon Features Heroic Story of Local Mt. Rainer Climbers


Welcome to a new year in Charlotte!  Join us on Friday, February 12th for our first ACA luncheon of 2016.  We’ve got an amazing speaker planned….Brendan Pierce.

Brendan is a local real estate developer who joined six other friends for a planned adventure climb of Mt. Rainer in 2015.  Even though all six of the men trained for several months for the challenging climb, no one could have imagined what unfolded as they traveled back down the mountain.

You won’t want to miss this incredible story!

Join us at Dilworth Neighborhood Grill for this event.  Please gather between 11 am – 11:30 am.  The program will begin shortly thereafter.  $15 at the door includes the cost of your lunch.
