PRESS RELEASE: 

The Salvation Army To Host 'Taste of the South' Fundraising Event


DANE COUNTY - The Salvation Army of Dane County will host its annual fall fundraiser on Thursday, September 12 with a southern twist! Supporting year-round programs and services for the ONLY Single Women's and Emergency Family Shelters in Dane County, Taste of the South: Bourbon & Bites provides a delicious way to give back. At the grand re-opening of Hawks Landing Golf Club, the event will feature delectable southern-inspired hors d'oeuvres created by Chris Eigenberger, an array of local and renowned bourbons as well as sweet tea and lemonade (with a tasting glass to keep), an extensive silent auction, and a live band. Support of this event is not only a night of southern food and fun, but directly benefits The Salvation Army of Dane County's shelter services, as they are home to the only Single Women's Shelter and Emergency Family Shelter in Dane County. With shelter services on the rise, a community approach to ending chronic homelessness is vital.
