Hardin County Healthcare Foundation's 'food fight' to raise funds for local anti-drug programs


The Hardin County Healthcare Foundation is hosting its Fifth Annual Food Fight fundraiser on Thursday, Nov. 2, from 5-7 p.m.

The event at Savannah Church of Christ, 1175 Pickwick St. in Savannah, features more than 25 food booths set up by local restaurants, business, churches and groups.

For a small fee, attendees will get to visit and sample all the delicious foods at each table.

“There will also be an amazing silent dessert auction with delicious cakes, pies and cookies donated by local bakers in our community,” said Healthcare Foundation President Lisa Thomas.

Then there’s the “Main Event Title Match,” which is “a heated amateur cake decorating contest and the winning decorator will be determined by the applause of attendees,” explained Thomas.

The winner of the food fight will also be determined by attendees voting for their favorite booth through a monetary donation.

Organizers said proceeds from the benefit fund drug abuse treatment programs in Hardin County, including Aspell Recovery Centers in Savannah and the Jack Gene Shelter for Men.

The Hardin County Healthcare Foundation is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve the delivery of healthcare and other community needs through the acquisition and utilization of philanthropic funds for the enhancement of patient care, education and research.
