We put together beautiful baskets with all kinds of great donations. Pick up is available for non-mailable or physical item donations. 

We are currently seeking wine and spirit donations for the wine wall and a "Spirited" cart. The wine wall is a guest favorite and the Spirited cart is featured in our LIVE auction. Please help us make both a huge success by donating a bottle or two today! We have a convenient way for you to purchase and leave your donation. 

We are partnering again this year with Northside Liquor to provide liquor donors with an easy and convenient way to donate to the Spirited cart. Northside has a registry list of all the requested bottles needed to fill a fabulous bar. Ask at the counter for the Harvest Dinner (LCC Foundation) registry, choose a bottle or more, pay, your name and phone number will be written down on the list (for tax credit purposes-yes, your donation is tax-deductible!) and leave it there for pickup by our staff.
