On Wednesday evening (Sept. 29), The Onsite Foundation hosted its “Together Again” gala and a slew of country music artists, including Miranda Lambert and Thomas Rhett, were among the star-studded guest list.
The country chic event took place at The Barn at Sycamore Farms in Arrington, Tennessee, just South of Nashville.
Guests were treated to a farm-to-table experience from Matt Bolus, Executive Chef from 404 Kitchen, as they dined on a Gulf shrimp salad, roasted beef strip loin, wild mushroom Bolognese and Za’atar roasted chicken. Featured sides included collard greens, braised field peas, coffee roasted carrots, cornbread drop biscuits. For dessert, they were treated to Jack Daniel’s honey pot de crème topped with apples and pecans.
The bar menu included wines from One Hope Winery, including Vintner Brut, Vintner Chardonnay, Vintner Pinot Noir, Vintner Rose as well as spirits such as Pickers Vodka and Jack Daniel’s Whiskey.
Proceeds from the event benefited The Onsite Foundation, an organization that provides trauma-informed counseling and emotional health education to individuals and communities in need. The Onsite Foundation also provides scholarships to programs at Onsite Workshops.
