Evening of Taste guests wowed by new venue

Doubling last year’s attendance, more than 200 guests dined on luscious hors d’oeuvres as they mingled at Gary McCalla’s sumptuous Granada estate during the Children’s Home Society’s fundraiser, an Evening of Taste, April 26. Jay Southerland and Alicia Burst co-chaired the event, which raised $73,000 through the efforts of a silent auction, live auction, wine pool, a text-to-give session, and the generosity of many sponsors.

The annual event supports the programs and services of the nonprofit, impacting more than 60,000 family members each year, including the 15,000-plus children who find security at CHS when they cannot safely remain in their own homes. The 117-year-old agency serves families in five counties in Northeast Florida.
