Evening in Italy raises money for adult literacy

Sixty-two community leaders came together last week to support a cause — adult literacy.
It is the purpose of Turning Pages to teach illiterate adults reading, writing, math and other life skills.
They invested $100 a couple for a five course gourmet wine dinner at Lexington’s Main Street Cafe.
The cafe’s owner, George Trifos, and Palmetto Wine & Spirts owner Sandi Patel hosted the event, the second in a series of dinners.
The West Metro Rotary Club sponsored the fund-raising event with Lexington Young Professionals, AGGAdvisors, Mirror Associates, Pine Press Printing and the Lexington County Chronicle and Lake Murray Fish Wrapper.
A third dinner in the series is planned soon but no date has been selected. Proceeds from the dinner will go to match a $3,000 Rotary Foundation grant.
