Wednesday November 27th from 5 PM to 9 PM (or until we run out of food ) at our building-309 Beauregard St. Charleston, WV 25301.

We have the ability to feed 50 people and would like to invite those that have nowhere to go this Thanksgiving to enjoy the holiday with us. There will be Turkey and all the fixins and dessert. We will also have Christmas cards on hand for those that would like to fill out a few to send the troops who are far away from home this holiday season.

This event is made possible by the hard work and dedication of volunteers at Kanawha Players Theater, generous donations from Longhorn Steakhouse and the wonderful culinary skills of Bad Fairy Productions.”
