Garden party for food and Friendship

Here's hoping the lovely weather holds until Saturday night for the 5th annual Friendship Garden party, a money-raiser for Friendship Trays and the Friendship Garden program, co-sponsored by Slow Food Charlotte.

Tickets are $50 and include chef-prepared appetizers, entertainment and a silent auction. It's 7 to 10 p.m. Saturday at 2401 Distribution St., the home of Friendship Trays and the Friendship Garden community garden, which is the source for some of the food used for the Friendship Trays program, which delivers meals to shut-ins who don't have access to fresh, healthful food.
