The Evening Fall Fete also featured food and wine from Charlotte's Zebra Restaurant. Guests dined on fabulous beef tenderloin, chicken satay skewers, Pate Au Foie Gras on baguette points, Anti Pasto of roasted marinated Portobello, roasted bell peppers, dilled baby carrots, Haricots Verts, olives, marinated feta, spinach and crab con queso, imported cheeses and fruit, and assorted truffles with chocolate covered strawberries "We were given an amazing opportunity in being able to partner with Diamonds Direct Southpark," says Amanda Hollingsworth, Assistant Executive Director & Direct of Development. "Not only were people able to start their Christmas shopping, but also give back to the community at the same time" All the proceeds from the evening will continue to help SCC in its mission to further our efforts to help children with educational, medical and social support in the Charlotte community.
