Letter: King’s Woods Dinner a success

Published 8:47 am Wednesday, May 22, 2019

The nearly sold out King’s Woods Dinner at the Hormel Historic Home on Saturday night was a wonderful evening of great music and delicious food.

This fundraiser benefited two local non-profits, the Hormel Historic Home and Gerard Academy. Guests entered the Hormel Home to the wonderful musical recordings of Geordie Hormel. Supporters enjoyed a fabulous pork crown roast meal prepared by Chef Wade Kolander. We are grateful to members of the Austin High School Skills USA group for helping to serve the meal. During dinner King’s Wood’s Jazz Quartet, led by Brian Koser, provided more music.

Holly Johnson, executive director of the Hormel Historic Home, and Brie Fisher, regional development coordinator for the Nexus Foundation, presented a brief program highlighting the services the non-profits provide.
