What a great night for Hospice of the Golden Isles (HGI)! In front of a sold out crowd, patrons enjoyed the sounds of the Randall Bramblett Band, Strawberry Flats with John Keane, and the Pine Box Dwellers while tasting great food from area chefs and drinking lively libations from local and regional distributors. This was the first year that the St. Simons Food and Spirits Festival hosted a one day event in the spring. Back to back hurricanes, helped influence the decision to try a new time and feel for the event that’s been going on for the past eight years in various forms. Special thanks to our festival board members and event organizer Beth Williams for the countless hours of planning that went into making this event such a success, and to our HGI volunteers who helped with jobs ranging from emptying trash bags to manning our silent auction. We also so very appreciative of the local chefs and business owners who consistently step up to support our non-profit by donating their time, staff, and talents toward making this event such a great fundraiser for HGI.
