Fondren Renaissance Foundation has announced that ‘Taste of Fondren,’ a restaurant tasting fundraiser set for this Thursday October 11 at Duling Hall, has been postponed until spring.
FRF executive director Jim Wilkirson says the Foundation wants to provide the biggest impact possible for their arts and education programs, the intended beneficiary of the event. “We have had several opportunities presented to us to add to this fund raising effort. Those elements have not been finalized. In the fullness of time, the event can be so much more than what we are capable of producing at this date. We regret the delay, but know that, in the long run, the arts, music and – most importantly – the children will receive a greater benefit.”
The Fondren Renaissance Foundation acts as a catalyst for the preservation and revitalization of the greater Fondren community, while empowering people, organizations, and neighborhoods to contribute to the economic growth, stability and quality of life in Fondren.
