Sylva businesses collaborate to benefit Community Table

Written by 

An evening of great food, great beer and fine wines was attended by 45 people on Nov. 18. 

The event was the Community Harvest Dinner, a fundraiser for The Community Table. Annie’s Bakery, Heinzelmannchen Brewery, Mill & Main, Papou’s Wine Shop and Yellow Branch Farm worked together to put on a three-course meal paired with a glass of wine and a glass a beer. Those attending were delighted with the evening requesting the organizers do this event again. 

“It was a wonderful evening with great food, drink, and friends,” said Amy Grimes, executive director of The Community Table. “This thoughtfulness means so much, especially during a time when The Table is growing rapidly, and our budget is struggling to keep up. It is only with the support of caring folks in our community that we are able to continue to feed our neighbors in need in a welcoming environment.” 

Proceeds from the dinner totaled $620 and have been given to The Community Table to help them move to a new location.

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
