On Oct. 13, thousands of local residents and visitors packed the streets of historic downtown Lewisburg to taste food created by over 40 regional vendors, listen to local bands, and participate in fun and educational activities.
Despite the early morning drizzle and cooler temperatures, TOOT guests enjoyed a beautiful day, and the event raised funds for Carnegie Hall and other area nonprofits and businesses. This year, vendors collectively grossed nearly $52,000 in sales. Carnegie Hall received more than $16,000 as its 25 percent of vendor sales. Vendors took home nearly $36,000.
The Greenbrier and The Greenbrier Sporting Club donated about 40 percent of their earnings to the Hall, contributing tremendously to the success of the event as a fundraiser. Without 2018 TOOT Sponsors the event would not be possible. Sponsors included: Benefactor MedExpress; Underwriters A New Chapter, Kroger, and Premier Bank; and Contributors Country Road Realty, LLC, Hashtag WV, PostNet, and Sandy Epling, State Farm.
