KENNESAW, Ga. — The Southern Museum of Civil War & Locomotive History is hosting its annual fundraising gala this November, and attendees have an opportunity to sample fare from local restaurants while supporting the educational mission of the museum.

Trains, Tapas & Tastings” is set for 6 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 8, at the Southern Museum in downtown Kennesaw. Tickets are $125 per person.

Proceeds from the gala benefit the Kennesaw Museum Foundation in support of the Southern Museum, and all donations are tax-deductible. Atlanta Bonded Warehouse is the title sponsor of this year’s celebration.

“The gala is an opportunity to support the museum in a fun way, and we are grateful for the support the community shows every year,” said Dr. Richard Banz, executive director of the Southern Museum. “Attendees can explore the museum and our exhibits in a relaxed, enjoyable environment.”

During this year’s event, restaurants from Kennesaw and Cobb County will supply small plates and desserts for attendees during a cocktail reception that also will feature a selection of beer, wine and spirits from local distilleries.

“No one ever leaves hungry, and attendees can also find in a new favorite restaurant in the process,” Banz said.

Attendees can participate in a live auction and a prize pull. Ollie Patterson Music is providing entertainment for the evening.

The dress code for “Trains, Tapas & Tastings” is event formal.
