IAM's annual fundraiser, "A Taste of Hendersonville" will be held on Tuesday, October 1, 2013. This is a very popular event. Over 20 local restaurants provide samples of their delicious specialties. A super Silent Auction with products and services (and golf packages!) donated by local artists and businesses offers the opportunity to bid on some wonderful items. Tickets are $40 and will go on sale at IAM in July. They always sell out quickly! Sponsorship opportunities are available now and most Sponsor Levels include tickets.
