“There is an incredible passion in our community for an array of philanthropic causes and we invite the public to join us as we celebrate our community’s generous giving,” says McCray Benson, President/CEO of Community Foundation of Henderson County. “This event aids in building the community’s general fund to tackle unforeseen opportunities and challenges within our community.”
My Family in Philanthropy
was an opportunity the Foundation saw in 2017 to engage a younger generation providing an opportunity for children to get involved in learning what it truly means to be part of a giving community. The first session included families that are now in their fourth generation of being involved in local philanthropy. There is no greater example of this year’s Vintage Carolina theme, Strong Roots. Strong Foundation. Strong Community.
Vintage Carolina will feature delectable small-plate offerings from some of the area’s best: Budy Finch Catering & Revelry, Champion Hills, Chef Michael’s Catering, Food Experience, Gateaux Cakes and Pastries, Hendersonville Community Co-Op, Hendersonville Country Club, The Saluda Grade Café, and Van’s Chocolates.
Guests will pair these fine foods with tastings of wine and beer from Advintage Distributing, Empire Distributors, Freedom Beverage Company, Saint Paul Mountain Vineyards, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Sanctuary Brewing, Southern Appalachian Brewery, and Tryon Distributing.
Space is limited and can be reserved online by visiting CFHCforever.org or by calling the Community Foundation at (828) 697-6224. The cost is $125 per person, and proceeds help support the work of CFHC, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, public charity that since 1982 has been helping people who care make lasting contributions to causes that matter.
