The sold-out crowd lined up for heaping plates of barbecue chicken, tomato pie, watermelon salad, cornbread, pickled okra, squash casserole and so on while keeping cool with cocktail-filled mason jars. In the distance, the goats and chickens of Serenbe lounged in the shade. A few bands from Atlanta played tunes for the crowd before the real main event: an auction to benefit Wholesome Wave Georgia. When the day ended, the event had raised more than $50,000 for the organization.
