Second Harvest and the Friends of Jimmy Carter are joining together in the “Corks and Forks” fundraiser on Saturday, November 19th. Guests will join President and Mrs. Jimmy Carter for an evening of wine tasting and a gourmet dinner by the Wisteria Restaurant.
The event will take place at the Windsor Hotel in Americus, Georgia.
Funds raised by the event will go towards both Second Harvest and Friends of Jimmy Carter National Historic Site. Both organizations exist to serve South Georgia:
Second Harvest is a regional hunger relief organization based in Valdosta, with branches in Albany, Douglas, and Thomasville. They partner with more than 400 programs to feed those in need.
The Friends of Jimmy Carter National Historic site operates under a vision “to inspire global audiences through the Carter legacy,” supporting the various programs and projects of the Site. “This particular fundraiser will help us to do just that.” says Director Kim Fuller.
Guests may choose from one of three packages, one of which includes an overnight stay in the historic Windsor Hotel. The event will begin with wine tasting, along with a silent auction, followed by dinner.
