Annual Nite in Olde Cumming set for March 17
Nite in Olde Cumming

Members of a local organization will host one of the longest-running local events on St. Patrick’s Day.

On Saturday, March 17, members of the Sawnee Woman’s Club will host the 33rd annual Nite in Olde Cumming, a fundraiser featuring dinner, dancing and a lot of activities. The event will be held at the Gleaming Event Hall at 2569 Peachtree Parkway.

“We’re celebrating St. Patrick’s Day since it is on March 17,” said Judy Vitucci, a member of the group. “We’re doing dancing, we have a silent auction. We’ll have a photo booth. We’re going to have some raffle tickets that are going to be able to be purchased at the event. It’ll just be a fun, entertaining evening, and at the same time, you’re able to provide support for an important organization in Forsyth County. “

Vitucci said the group supports several local causes and organizations including The Place of Forsyth County, Treat the Troops, Special Olympics Forsyth County and Family Promise, along with supporting a scholarship and conservation efforts.

“Basically, the organization is geared toward meeting unmet needs in Forsyth County. It’s a small organization, but it is very mighty,” she said, later adding, “This fundraiser helps provide the funding for us to participate in activities with these organizations.”

The event will also be a chance for those interested in joining the group to see what the Sawnee Woman’s Club does in the community.

“It’s nice to be a part of an organization that has such a heart for the county,” Vitucci said. “It’s nice to participate in national organizations, but this is a local organization. I think the local part is particularly what appeals to me. I like helping my neighbors.”

Tickets to the event are $50 and can be purchased at SawneeWomensClub.org.
