On Thursday May 12th, Crossnore Communities for Children held its first ever Sips at the Silo event at Miracle Grounds Farm. The goal of Sips at the Silo was to raise awareness for children who have experienced abuse or other trauma and offer assistance in ways that create and rebuild a safe and dependable living environment for these children.
ICON was the presenting sponsor for the evening event. There were numerous sponsors that made the event a successful evening. Guests were invited by influencers that were on the planning committee. As the 100 guests arrived, they were greeted by life-size cut-outs of the children throughout the farm, ensuring that their presence was felt and seen.
After several years of Covid changing plans and keeping events from happening, Crossnore welcomed familiar friends back to the campus as well as new friends to share their mission and the future hopes for Crossnore Communities for Children.
The guests enjoyed a cocktail party with sips and hors d’oeuvres as they were entertained by music from Christian Hildebrandt. Sips at the Silo was so successful that the hope is to continue this event in the future. Brett Loftis, Chief Executive Officer says, “We are grateful to everyone who attended Sips at the Silo to learn more about Crossnore. The support of the Winston-Salem community has been amazing throughout the years, and we look forward to hosting our friends and neighbors for years to come.”
