GH-winner

Get excited – one of my favorite Nashville events, Generous Helpings, is Thursday, May 16 + one lucky reader will win two tickets (a $100 value)! I try to attend every year (+ I’ll be there this year, 8.5 months pregnant!), as it’s amazingly delicious AND benefits a great cause – the Second Harvest Food Bank. 30+ local restaurants bring a huge array of appetizers, entrees + desserts (as well as beer + wine) to the Nashville Farmer’s Market, + you get to sample every last scrumptious bite. Sounds fab, doesn’t it?

One of the best food and wine tasting events of the year, Generous Helpings supports Middle Tennessee’s Table, Middle Tennessee’s prepared and perishable food rescue program. So not only is it fun for your tummy, but it’s also a great way to do a little good for our community.

This event sounds aaaaamazing! Wish we lived closer to Nashville!

49 Monet May 7, 2013 at 10:23 pm

Smile. I wish I lived closer! I know you’ll have a great time though…and good luck to all those who want to win a chance to go!

50 amy May 8, 2013 at 6:02 am

Monet + Ashley, wish you both lived closer too!!
