Angel Passailaigue Holmes is a true Charleston native and well, she’s as fun as they come. Her background is rich and deep in the travel and tourism and food and beverage industries. She served on the host steering committee for World Cup Soccer-Orlando, served as Communications Manager for the Jacksonville Convention & Visitors Bureau, opened her own PR firm in Jacksonville, FL, then in 2000, she moved back to her hometown Charleston, SC and became Public and Media Relations Manager at the Charleston Area Convention & Visitors Bureau. In October of that year, she was recruited by the South Carolina Aquarium as their PR Manager. A few years later she opened her own PR firm called Home Team Communications, Inc. and was approached by Chef Marc Collins at Circa 1886 to consider starting a food and wine festival in Charleston – now called Charleston Wine + Food – which she did and ran for 8 years. In 2018, after years of consulting with national events as a side project, Holmes created Sipindipity to focus on her passion to create new meaningful events and to assist existing events become even better than before, including Chow Chow: An Asheville Culinary Event, and assisted with Alys Beach Foundation’s 30A Wine Festival.
