Food education organization Local Matters will hold its annual fundraiser, entitled Harvest Ball, on October 24 at the High Line Car House in Columbus. The event will feature locally-sourced food, plus raffle packages such as a year’s worth of local dining, a “Best of Columbus” sporting events package, a private dinner in the Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams test kitchen, and a 5-night vacation stay at luxury resort, The Greenbrier. The featured entertainment will be live bluegrass music from The Wayfarers.
Now in its sixth year of operation, Local Matters’ goals are to “decrease the prevalence of diet-related diseases and food insecurity in Columbus.” “We have accomplished this work through strong partnerships with communities, organizations, volunteers, and corporations who gladly share their time, passions and resources to work towards increasing education and access to healthful food for thousands of children, families and individuals,” says Kerry Shaw, Director of Development and Communications.
Cost: $100 per person. Location: 550 S. High St. For more information, visit Local-Matters.org/Harvest-Ball.
