September 15, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Since 2013, Charleston has benefited from the attention and resources of those who pioneered and participated in Women Who IMPACT Preservation, an event that raises money for community initiatives identified by Historic Charleston Foundation as transformational. We are proud to resume the IMPACT celebration this year by honoring Vereen H. Coen on Thursday, September 15th from 6 to 8 pm at The Camden Room, Charleston Visitor Center (375 Meeting Street).

A Charleston native, Vereen has spent a lifetime championing the preservation of the Lowcountry and its culture. In addition to serving on too many community boards to list, Vereen is an engaged supporter of Historic Charleston Foundation and the Preservation Society of Charleston, graciously opening both her house on Meeting Street (upon which HCF holds a preservation easement) and at Halidon Hill plantation for preservation tours. She has led the effort to raise millions of dollars for the community through the sale of Charleston Receipts, which was co-authored by her mother, and is considered THE ultimate cookbook on Lowcountry cuisine, featuring centuries-old recipes from some of Charleston’s earliest families. Together with her husband, Richard (Dick), she has devoted herself for decades to the preservation of the Cooper River corridor, including the restoration and stewardship of Pompion Hill Chapel, c.1763, a parish church near Huger, SC.

Proceeds from this year’s Women Who IMPACT Preservation event will help fund Historic Charleston Foundation’s Neighborhood Impact projects such as the Pine Tree Hotel at Mosquito Beach in the Sol Legare community on James Island.


Individual tickets are available for purchase online, by check or by phone at 843-722-1149, $75 per person.
