The Bridgewater Club to Host Fuelicious 2022
The Artomobilia organizers are excited to share that this year’s Fuelicious event will be held at The Bridgewater Club on Friday, Aug. 26. The prestigious golf club has a long history of designing and delivering a culinary experience like no other. No venue serves as a better canvas for presenting a stunning collection of automotive performance, luxury and heritage all in one evening.
A Night of Fundraising and Fantastic Automobiles
Fuelicious will excite the senses by delivering a distinct environment, a premium culinary experience, a unique collection of automobiles and a premier audience of committed automotive enthusiasts that combine to create an unmatched, exclusive social entertainment experience.
The Artomobilia team has a long history of designing and delivering a culinary experience like no other. Collaborating with the staff at The Bridgewater Club, the Artomobilia team has created a comprehensive menu that will boast Italian cuisine to honor this year’s marque Ferrari and other exemplary Italian brand automobiles.
The evening’s entertainment will surprise and delight with a high-energy performance with a modern take on classic hits.
Purpose drives the focus of this event by aligning awareness and the resources of automotive enthusiasts, business leaders and local personalities in supporting the incredible work of Meals on Wheels of Central Indiana.
Please note, the dress is “summer attire,” and flats — not heels — are highly encouraged, given the nature of the ground surface [grass].
Artomobilia Event Director John Leonard shared, “We’ve partnered with The Bridgewater Club and their chef this year, and there will be a great car collection, signature drinks [and] great food and entertainment, supporting Meals on Wheels of Central Indiana. Earlier that day, we will be doing a ‘Ride and Drive’ with Lake Forest Ferrari and Evans May Wealth.”
Leonard addressed this year’s change of venue from the Lucas Estate to The Bridgewater Club.
“We had a great run at [Lucas] for the better part of seven years,” Leonard emphasized. “They were fantastic, and we continue to love their facility, but we decided to change it up and try something new. The Bridgewater Club provides us an opportunity to expand a little bit and bring the cars in closer to the dining experience, etc.”
Experiencing The Bridgewater Club
The Bridgewater Club’s Chief Operating Officer and General Manager Mike Gardner is excited to host this year’s Fuelicious guests.
Gardner shared why The Bridgewater Club is an ideal venue for large-scale events such as Fuelicious.
“For the past eighteen years, The Bridgewater Club has provided exceptional experiences to our member and guests,” Gardner said. “With versatile spaces, indoor and outdoor locations, catering and more, our event team ensures that each need of the client is met during their time here. Whether it’s the 90,000-square-foot clubhouse, the 350+ acres of grounds, one of the largest outdoor spaces of any venue in the area or the exceptional service, The Bridgewater Club offers a natural, serene setting unmatched anywhere in central Indiana.”
The Bridgewater Club boasts several unique amenities and features in addition to its expertise in private event planning.
“At The Bridgewater Club, we offer experiences tailored to the specific vision of the client,” Gardner shared. “Every event begins with choosing a location, and we offer a range of different spaces to choose from, including The Bridgewater Tent, Event Lawn and Firepit that sit in a secluded area on the east side of the property, steps away from the outdoor terrace and indoor amenities. Draped in Italian lighting and surrounded by enchanting scenery, the Event Lawn has proven to be our most popular spot.”
Gardner continued, “For this event, we are using the north driving range tees framed by lakes, the golf course, acres of open space and the beautiful clubhouse framing the backdrop. The Club’s practice facility has been rated as a Top 50 practice facility every year by Golf Range Association of America Magazine, and the outdoor spaces have been rated as a Top 10 outdoor space by Club and Resort Magazine for private clubs throughout the country. The Clubhouse was also recognized by Club and Resort Magazine as Clubhouse of the Year in 2020.”
The Bridgewater Club’s Executive Chef, Chris Nealy, will delight the guests of Fuelicious with a one-of-a-kind Italian cuisine menu. Nealy has 20+ years of experience and studied at the acclaimed Johnston and Whales in Charleston, S.C. Nealy has been leading The Bridgewater Club’s culinary team for more than two years.
“From the appetizers to the entrees and the decadent desserts, our culinary team is excited to share their creations with [Fuelicious] guests,” Gardner said. “While dining on Italian cuisine, Fuelicious guests will enjoy an evening out on our award winning 23-acre driving range.
Gardner expressed the importance of working with community organizations such as the Artomobilia team and collaborating on fundraisers like Fuelicious.
“The Bridgewater Club’s focus is to provide an exceptional experience of the membership,” Gardner stated. “With that being said, our members are heavily involved in the community, and with the Club being the largest private club in the state of Indiana, there is a sense of responsibility to be a good community steward and open the Club’s doors to organizations that are having such a positive impact on the community. We are honored to partner with such a great organization whose values align with the Club.”
