Project Green Fork’s Loving Local Fund-raiser Saturday

Posted By on Fri, Oct 3, 2014 at 4:33 PM


If you haven’t yet, there’s still time to sign up for Project Green Fork’s annual Loving Local fund-raiser, which takes place tomorrow (Saturday, Oct. 4th, 6-9pm) at the Malco Summer Drive-In. Order tickets online, or just show up at the door.

The event features bites from some of Memphis’s best-loved (and most sustainable) restaurants, including Vegan Nachos by Fuel Café, pork sliders by Central BBQ, and pizza from Ciao Bella. There will also be liquid refreshment from Wiseacre, Roaring Tiger Vodka, and So Fresh Mobile Juice Truck.

Want to be entertained? There will be live music by Impala, miniature golf, giant Jenga, cornhole, and a silent auction. Auction items, which include caramels from Shotwell Candy Co. and custom jewelry from The Bead Couture, can be viewed on Project Green Fork’s instagram.

If all else fails, you can always just look up. During the event, two classic movies—both shot in Memphis—will be playing on the big screen: Mystery Train and Walk the Line.

Since 2009, Project Green Fork has helped Memphis restaurants become more environmentally friendly by teaching them to do things like compost, use less water, and recycle. Tickets to this year’s fund-raiser start at $30, but if you upgrade to a VIP pass, you can get some cool swag.
