Dinner on Depot Street

On Saturday, May 3, 2014 at 6:30 pm, 200 guests will celebrate the joy of summer while enjoying an elegant evening dining under the stars at Fuquay-Varina Downtown Association's major fundraising event named "Dinner on Depot Street," located in the historic Fuquay shopping district.

Ticket holders will wine & dine by candlelight, dance by starlight, have a chance to bid & win on a number of highly valued auction items, and meet new friends.  Our annual awards program will round out the night by recognizing individuals and businesses whose contributions and support of Downtown has been "above and beyond" the call of duty.

Money raised from the event will be used to aid the FVDA in bringing culture and commerce to the citizens of Fuquay-Varina through planned projects such as downtown gathering spaces, historic markers & a walking tour, an enhanced Growers Market, streetscape projects and by expanding our community arts offerings to continue to make Downtown a destination.

  • A wonderful meal provided by downtown restaurants.
  • An elegant Al Fresco decor provided by Flowers on Broad Street, & Classic Party Rentals.
  • Live entertainment provided by The Central Park Band
  • A Live Auction presenting themed packages with exceptional value and items of the finest quality.

Calling all connoisseurs, wine enthusiasts, and donors!

NEW this Year…. A ‘Wine Pull’

A “Wine Pull” helps raise money in a FUN way! 100 bottles of wine are donated by individuals and businesses with values ranging from close to $20 to over $100! Each bottle is randomly numbered. Anyone can buy a CORK for $20. You may buy as many corks as you would like – no limit. Participants will exchange their cork for the corresponding numbered bottle of wine. Some bottles may also be accompanied by an additional “surprise.”

ONLY 100 CORKS WILL BE SOLD.

In order to make our 2014 Dinner on Depot Street fundraiser even more memorable and more entertaining than last year, we are seeking wine donations for our WINE PULL.

Wine donations may be made by individuals or businesses. Groups and associations may want to pool resources and donate a vintage wine, a magnum bottle, or a case of wine in their group’s name. Businesses are also invited to donate in their name. Cash donations are welcome and will be used to purchase wine. The magnum/case donors will be acknowledged at the event.

Please donate your bottles of wine from now until April 1st.

For more information, contact Linda Wood at 919-552-0848 or by email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Arrangements can be made to drop off bottles of wine at the FVDA office located at 108 Raleigh Street or at Ann’s Diamond Center located at 201 S. Main Street if our office is closed.

All proceeds from the event will benefit Fuquay-Varina Downtown Association.
