The Friends of Epworth are proud to announce an exciting new event for the 6th Annual Friends of Epworth Party to benefit Epworth Children’s Home! This year we will be hosting a Palate Party on Saturday, March 10, 2018 at Hay Hill Market in Columbia.  This event will delight your senses and nourish your soul, with food and wine pairings that are sure to please even the most discerning of palates. As the signature event for the Friends of Epworth, the event raises awareness and funds for Epworth and the children who call Epworth home.

Most children in our community have all they need and more. This makes it possible for them to dream big, knowing that someone along the way will help them reach their goals…but not all children are so lucky.  The children at Epworth come from environments where poverty, neglect and abuse derail childhoods.  Instead of dreaming of bright futures, these children faced daily nightmares.  Thankfully, their lives—and dreams—transform by the love, security and care given to them at Epworth.

The buzz around Columbia is that the Friends of Epworth Palate Party is already earning the reputation as the “Best Party in Columbia.”   We expect 2018 to be the biggest and liveliest event yet!  Attendees come ready for an elevated menu and a good time.  This “upscale casual” event includes live music, a large dance floor, incredible food stations complete with wine pairings for each, and an open bar for all guests.

Join us for a night of fun as we celebrate the promise of bright futures for children at Epworth.

Tickets are $75/each. Purchase your ticket today.
