Streamsound Records’ Karen Tallier has “thrown her tiara in the ring” to raise money to earn her title as “Queen of the Vines” for this year’s Franklin Wine Festival held October 16 at The Factory in Franklin, TN in support of the children of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee. The event hosts more than 300 wines from around the world, 30 culinary samplings from Middle Tennessee area restaurants and caterers, an exciting live and silent auction, live entertainment on multiple stages.
Members of the 2015 Royal Court conduct personal fundraising campaigns on behalf of the children’s charity. All donations are tallied on site at the final event on October 16, and it’s quite simple, the man with the highest fundraising total is crowned King, and the women bringing in the most donations is proclaimed Queen. The money raised allows Big Brothers Big Sisters to start something positive in the lives of children by recruiting and training volunteers who want to mentor kids. No matter how little or big the amount, donating can start making a difference in the lives of the young people around you.
