THE BELLEVIEW BILTMORE HOTEL IS SAVED!
Welcome to Save the Biltmore Preservationists, Inc., a nonprofit organization. A group of people dedicated to saving and preserving the 1897 Belleview Biltmore Resort and Spa, all four wings and all guest rooms so this beautiful building remains a hotel with AUTHENTIC Victorian charm. This web site was launched by Diane Hein, president of Save the Biltmore Preservationists in November, 2004 when it was first learned that the Biltmore might be demolished. We always welcome new supporters.
Send a mail to Diane Hein, if you wish to be on my Biltmore Update mailing list in which I send out news about the Biltmore and its events and activities.
"BACK TO THE FUTURE" PARTY
On June 1, 2009 the Belleview Biltmore will close for renovations for approximately three years. To celebrate the resort's amazing history, from its origin when it was built in 1897, to the present, and to the future, when it will reopen in 2012, UPARC, a local nonprofit organization, will hold the last party at the venerable historic Biltmore. The party "Back to the Future" will be on Sunday, May 31, 2009 from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m. A variety of rooms in the hotel will be set up to represent different eras so you can mingle from place to place. Guests may also tour the hotel. The dress is casual but you may also dress up in costume. Cuisine from past eras will also be served, and you will be able to dance to a variety of live music. The event co-chairs are Chris Daily and May Lynne Hawkins, and the honorary chairs are Karen Crown and Diane and Dean Gobo. UPARC is an organization that serves individuals with developmental disability. Individual tickets are $100. Patron level tickets, which include a listing in the event program, are $150. Tickets for the Chinese Auction also are available in advance for $20/8. Sponsorship opportunities are still available. For tickets, call Elisa Fredericks at UPARC at 799-3330, ext. 7451.
