Wine tasting event raises money to help the homeless

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The community was invited to participate in an evening of wine with friends on Friday night. 

It was held at The Loft from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. and included a night of live music and a silent auction.

The event benefited thousands of homeless individuals in our community.

All proceeds collected benefit the Homeless Resource Network. 

"In the last year we served over 1,400 folks who experience homelessness right here in Columbus," said Elizabeth Dillard, Executive Director of the Homeless Resource Network. "We are trying connect people to resources and information they need to improve self-efficacy and end their homelessness."

The event was sponsored by Aflac, WC Bradley, Robinson Grimes and Company, Hatcher Stubbs, and Cynthia Maisano.
