Food And Wine Weekend Raises Thousands For Charity

CHARLOTTE, NC– Uncork, unwind, and start your weekend off with a good cause.
Folks spent their friday night with WCCB News Rising’s Derek James at the Charlotte Wine and Food Weekend!

He hosted the Grand Gala and Auction.

Event organizers say it’s been an incredible past few days, raising $100,000 alone for children’s charities on Wednesday.

“Everybody recognized that this is a very important time and children are being left out and this is our way of umping that dialogue and giving back.” said the event’s Executive Director, Dockery Clark.
