If you missed this sold-out charity event last Thursday evening, all I can say is, better luck next year! This is the second fund raiser I’ve had the privilege of attending recently to support the work of America’s Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia and I must say they certainly know how throw a posh party!
Jewels and Jeans was held at the organization’s food bank on President’s Street. The intent was to raise money specifically to provide meals for the thousands of children that participate in the Childhood Hunger Initiative programs. The event featured live music, impressive silent auction items and art work, complimentary drinks, fantastic food from local caterers and restaurants served at sampling booths in strategic locales throughout the building, and the best part, I got to go in my jeans! How awesome is that?!
My first food encounter of the evening was with Ronnie Thompson, owner of the famous Mrs. Wilkes’ Boarding House, who was actually there in person serving up helpings of his southern ham biscuits, homemade macaroni and cheese, and sweet potatoes like only Mrs. Wilkes can do.

Wow! What a way to go! This Tour D’ Epicure was a “foodie’s” dream. Hopping from one fine dining establishment to the next, being graciously chauffered through the gorgeous tree-lined historic streets of downtown Savannah with no worries about driving or parking, anxiously anticipating the next stop, made for a magical, memorable evening of tasty treats, tantilizing tastings, and tempting art.
Kudos must first be extended to the go-getting gals who co-organized this inaugural tour for the over 120 participants. Shelley Smith, owner of Eos and Kristin King, co-owner of New Arts Ensembles, are to be loudly applauded for all their tenacity and unselfish effort that went in to putting this all together for such a worthy cause. According to Kristin, “We are very excited and hopeful for it to become established as an annual event.”
