We buried my mother-in-law in Mississippi on Tuesday and cannot use our two tickets to Triangle Farm to Fork picnic this evening. I can deliver the ticket to you in exchange for $120 cash which is what we paid.
Dear Friend of Local Food,
Thank you for supporting local agriculture by attending the Farm to Fork Picnic on May 23rd! The event provides a unique opportunity for all to taste locally grown foods prepared by some of the regions most acclaimed chefs and food artisans. It also provides an opportunity to support new and transitioning farmers, and to jump start, renew, or continue efforts to support food and farming systems that protect the environment and strengthen local communities.
FOOD, DRINK & AUCTION
In addition to great food and drink, we will have live music, a live and silent auction, educational exhibits, and fun activities for the kids. The live auction will take place at 6:00 pm, and the silent auction will close at 6:30 pm. Please remember to bring your checkbook if you are interested in bidding on any items. The nine items included in the live auction are as follows:
A private brewery tour and tasting for up to eight people at Fullsteam Brewery
