Presented by The Market at Tobacco Row, ARC's Annual Ladybug Dinner and Winetasting raised over $100,000 for The Greater Richmond ARC's Infant and Child Development Services' Ladybug Fund this spring. The Fund helps pay for tuition for children who need ICDS services, but whose families have trouble paying for them.
The dinner, hosted by Robert Mondavi Winery and held at the Old Original Bookbinder's Restaurant, was attended by 160 sponsors and friends of ARC. The winetasting and silent auction, held at Tredegar Ironworks gun foundry was attended by 525 guests and featured a selection of wines donated by 17 wineries. Heavy hors d' oeuvres from some of Richmond's finest restaurants including Acacia, Avenue 805, Flemings, Hondo's, LaGrotta, The Melting Pot and Old Originial Bookbinder's were prepared on-site and added to the festive evening.
The date has been set for the 2006 events. An informational reception for prospective sponsors will be held on November 7th. Contact Kim Jeremiah @ kim.jeremiah@RichmondARC.org for more information.
