We're only a week away from Purple Asparagus' annual benefit Corks & Crayons: a good time for all ages. Adults can enjoy beverages from Candid Wines and Three Floyds, Uncommon Mint Juleps made with Templeton Rye and iced coffee from Crop to Cups and kids aqua frescas with fruit from Seedling. All guests will enjoy a terrific sampling of Uncommon Ground's menu as well as music from an American Roots & Blues duo, tours of Uncommon Ground's rooftop farm and a mini-farmers' market stocked by Harvest Moon Farms and manned by our pint-size guests.
The silent auction is stocked with goodies, like dinner for 2 at Mado, an overnight stay at the Park Hyatt and Indian cooking classes. We'll be raffling off gift baskets, magazine subscriptions and other fun. All of the proceeds go to support our school programs, which we plan to expand this year with the funds raised from the event.
