Read about a local farm that’s hosting a fundraising dinner that’ll take you out of city life for a night and down on the farm for food and fun!
Gorman Heritage Farm host an annual event to support their mission of offering education about agriculture, nutrition, sustainability, and the environment. Called Row by Row, the fundraising dinner highlights the bounty of the farm while giving guests the chance to learn more about it while also having a great time.
“The 2019 dinner is August 24, beginning at 6pm at Gorman Heritage Farm,” says Tricia Watts, Executive Director at Gorman Heritage Farm.
When you purchase a ticket for Row by Row you’ll receive a dinner made with food that was grown and raised on the farm, beers from MadTree, a variety of wines, live music, and the chance to bid on silent and live auction items.
“VIP tickets also include our happy half hour with live music, specialty cocktails, appetizers, and the chance to meet some of our favorite farm animals,” Watts adds.
Watts says that what makes this event unique is that the food featured in the dinner is grown and raised on the farm. “The dinner takes place in a beautiful setting to benefit our nonprofit farm’s educational programs,” she says.
In addition to its annual dinner, Gorman Heritage Farm is bringing new programs to the farm to help with educating guests.
“We are super excited about our new Farm to Classroom program,” she says. “For schools that can’t make it to the farm for various reasons, we take the farm to them.”
Additionally, the Farm has upcoming adult and family classes and programs for the public to participate in to learn more about agriculture, nutrition, sustainability, and the environment, which can be found on their website and Facebook page.
You can be a part of the fundraising for Row by Row Dinner by participating in the event, sponsoring a table, or by making a donation of cash, goods, or services for the silent and live auctions.
“We also love hosting events on the farm, like birthday parties, weddings, family reunions, civic groups, and corporate events,” adds Watts.
