Wine Dinner Raises $1000 for Adult Literacy

For Lizabeth Gray, last week’s wine dinner was a homecoming.
“I grew up in the blue house on Roberts Street here in Lexington,” she said.
Gray was preparing to tell 40 diners about each wine at the fundraiser for Turning Pages literacy tutoring April 24.
The four-course “Taste of France” dinner was the third fundraiser at Main Street Cafe. It raised about $1,000 to help teach reading, writing and other skills to adults in Lexington and Richland counties to help them qualify for better jobs.
The dinner was sponsored by Mirror Associates, Adams Gyemant and Griffin Advisory Group, Main Street Cafe, Palmetto Wine & Spirits and the Lexington County Chronicle & Dispatch-News.
Donations to adult literacy tutoring may be made by credit card at https://turning-pages.org/reading-between-the-wines/ or by calling 782-1210 or 312-1870.
