A unique and charity-minded dinner is scheduled for October 26 in Ashland City.
The event, Farm-to-Table Dinner on the Square, will be held on the courthouse lawn- the first of its kind in the heart of town.
With the purchase of a $50 ticket, attendees can expect a professionally cooked dinner with dessert made by O’Brien’s Southern Diner owner Candice Beasley, Katelyn Waynick, and a surprise nationally-recognized chef.
Entertainment will be provided by Hunter Cook, a country music singer based out of Pennsylvania. And, to preserve memories of the evening, a Halloween-themed photo booth will be set up in the gazebo.
The idea, drummed up by Beasley, was inspired by her desire to help less fortunate people throughout Cheatham County.
“I help because I know what it is like to be hungry,” she says. “I know what it is like to go without and have nowhere to turn.”
70 percent of the profits, according to Beasley, will be donated to Meals on Wheels, a cause she is passionate about.
“Meals on Wheels has a waiting list,” Beasley adds. “It is a cause that needs immediate help.”
She plans to set the other 30 percent aside into a fund allocated for a community center she hopes to see built one day in Cheatham County.
In July, Beasley applied for a 501c3 in order to get the ball rolling on her dream of helping bring a community center, a place where local youth can safely and productively gather as well as where hungry children can get a hot meal, to the area.
