Katie's Place Farm Fest a Success Despite the Wet Weather

Posted: Updated:

Despite this weekend's wet weather, plenty of people still flocked to Troutville for the third annual Farm Fest.

A little rain wasn't enough to stop volunteers or 150 event goers from enjoying the live music, arts and crafts, a llama exhibit, a petting zoo, s'mores and hay rides.

The event benefits Katie's Place, and it raised more than $2,500 for programming for adults with special needs.

Katie's Place also got a $10,000 grant from the Chesapeake District of Civitan International to fund scholarships for the Katie's Place Day Support Program. This program will teach skills for more independent living and is scheduled to commence later this year.

However, event organizers expect the total amount of money raised to increase, since people who weren't able to make it out to the event are still making donations.
