A great dinner for an even better cause

Kingsmill Resort & Spa, in partnership with the Kiwanis Club of Williamsburg, recently hosted a sold-out dinner for 400 guests who enjoyed fresh Maine lobster as part of a three-course event, joining in a world-wide effort to eradicate maternal neonatal tetanus.

Primary table sponsors included Jamestown Financial Group, Suter Printing, Williamsburg Drug Company, Thrivent Financial and Nathan Hill and Lauren Duguay of Long and Foster Realty.

Twenty door prizes valued at more than $1,000 were donated by Walls Alive, Dr. Kevin Walsh, Giuseppe’s Restaurant, The Virginia Symphony, Busch Gardens Christmas Town, Phaedra McNorton, Suter Printing, Thom MacDonnell, Hertzler-George Landscaping, Kingsmill Resort, Nathan Hill, Victoria’s Restaurant, Conscientious Carpet care, Cheese Shop-Fat Canary, Patriot Buick GMC and Gary Plaag.

Students of Elizabeth Caine at Warhill High School provided music for the reception, and Phaedra McNorton lent her beautiful voice to the opening of “God Bless America.”

Kingsmill Resort has graciously supported the dinner for five years, enabling our Kiwanis club to raise more than $20,000 for the Eliminate Project, which has made the entire Western Hemisphere free from the tetanus epidemic.
