Alleghany County Community Foundation Cancels Annual Gourmet Wine Dinner Fundraiser

The board of advisors of the Alleghany County Community Foundation, an affiliate of the North Carolina Community Foundation, is canceling its plans to host their Gourmet Wine Dinner. The event was planned to be held in October. The cancellation was made in response to the rising coronavirus cases.

“Canceling the Wine Dinner was an extremely difficult choice to make,” said Board President Brett Liverman, “but one made out of concern for the health and welfare of our community.”

The fundraiser supports the Alleghany Opportunity Fund, a community grantmaking endowment of the affiliate.

The board of advisors awarded $15,000 this year to eight nonprofit organizations serving residents in Alleghany County.
