Al Jazeera T.V. at The William Aiken House

Know what's fun about Patrick Properties? There is no typical day.

Yesterday, I received a call from Camille Elhassani, Deputy Program Editor at Al Jazeera English in DC. They’re interviewing 5 voters about the election and wanted to film in an historic Charleston building. And who did our friends at The Historic Charleston Foundation recommend? Yes, us. The shoot takes place this Sunday at The William Aiken House.

If you've been reading the blog, you know we’ve been playing host to some fascinating guests lately. Last week at The William Aiken House, Ann M. Fudge, former CEO of Young & Rubicam and President at Kraft, spoke in support of Barack Obama. (She was also named by FORTUNE as one of the 50 most powerful women in American business.)

This Thursday, Sheila Johnson, the first African American female billionaire, former owner of BET and owner of the Washington Mystics (WNBA), will be joining us to host an Obama event.

And, back in December, Samantha Power, Obama’s foreign policy advisor, joined us for lunch at Fish. And, Congressman Brad Carson and Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour held a press conference at The William Aiken House announcing their support for Obama.

All this AND we throw great parties, preserve historic properties and make delicious food. Yeah, it's a living.
