The volunteer committee — Pam Eaton, Brandi May, Joy Cantrell, Judy Renfroe and Bill Quinney — has planned for the dinners to be the first Sunday of each month from May through October. The Kennesaw Downtown Development Authority is sponsoring the volunteer committee and the event.
It will be a “farm to table” showcase for vendors from the local farmers’ market to sell their products, Welsh said. There are local farmers who have pork and chicken as well as seasonal vegetables, she said.
“We expect this to be a sold-out event,” Welsh said. “It won’t be a huge fundraiser, but it’ll bring awareness for ‘farm to table.’”
The dinners will be at the Depot Plaza, which is a branch of the Kennesaw Downtown Development Authority, and will be $35 per person. Each dinner has 100 tickets available and 10 tables of 10 people.
“We’re even going to have locally grown flowers as decoration and recycled materials for the eating utensils.”
The ticket price doesn’t include alcohol, but there will be a cash bar at each dinner, Welsh said. The committee plans to work with Burnt Hickory Brewery and Boutier Wine and Design, both local companies, for the cash bar.
