STAFF REPORTSMay 14, 2019

FLORENCE, S.C. – Help 4 Kids Florence officials were in for a big surprise Tuesday as committee members from the second annual Florence Wine and Food Festival presented a check to the organization for this year’s proceeds.

The amount was $70,000, nearly triple the $24,000 amount that the festival was able to raise and donate to the nonprofit organization last year.

The festival, held April 11-13 in downtown Florence, served a menu of tasty events, including Meat & Meander, an evening that highlighted local restaurants and focused on their preparations of grilled foods; the Sip & Savor Wine Stroll through downtown Florence, where local businesses were transformed into wine-tasting rooms; and the Final Pour, a five-course gourmet meal prepared by local chefs using locally sourced ingredients.
