The new year brought numerous opportunities for Goodwin Events to help with great causes. From the Denim and Diamonds Ball benefiting Lake Oconee Academy to the Mint Jubilee supporting Athens Regional’s NICU Unit, we are doing great things for many communities. In late March, we were asked to help with the VIP Tent at one of the largest fundraisers in the region, The Lake Oconee Food and Wine Festival. Benefiting Gatewood School, OPAS Educational Outreach, and the Eatonton-Putnam Arts Foundation this event brings in 700-800 attendees for a night of gourmet food and wine tasting. The VIP Experience brought 150 sponsors and guests on to the Ritz Carlton Lodge property almost two hours before the actual festival for a networking, upgraded food and wine selections, and a special presentation from Chef Steven Satterfield of Miller Union restaurant in Atlanta.
We installed a 50×60 Gable End Frame Tent with custom swagging, drapes, and our new Silver Geo Chandeliers and we insisted by local contractor Chris Merritt on a 1,000 sq ft carpeted flooring install. Shane Meder of Black Sheep Interiors supplied an amazing array of lounge furnishings.
