It’s the F.A.R.M. Fall Fest
F.A.R.M. Café invites the public to attend a fall festival fundraiser, taking place Wednesday, Nov. 14, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.
All proceeds go toward helping F.A.R.M. (Feed All Regardless of Means) Café’s mission to feed those of less means within the High Country community.
The event features live music by local musicians, as well as face painting. Other highlights include Thanksgiving themed crafts and clogging by Arthur Grimes.
The suggested donation price is $8 for adults and $5 for children younger than 10. Donations will be collected at the door upon arrival. Families, children, students and people of all ages are welcome. Donations of canned goods are also welcome to help stock the shelves at F.A.R.M. Light food and refreshments will also be served.
The event is organized by students in the Appalachian State University Department of Communications, on behalf of a fundraising course, in conjunction with F.A.R.M. Café.
