Although the weather wasn't really too cold in Greeneville on Saturday night, a capacity crowd of 150 gathered at the George R. Lane building on Depot Street for the Second Annual "Snowball," held to benefit Main Street: Greeneville.
Twinkling lights, snowflakes, and white tablecloths centered with mirrors and candles provided a beautiful setting for the guests, and The Wild Honey Beans provided music from the 1950s to today for participants listening and dancing pleasure.
Heavy hors d'oeuvres, prepared and served by the Main Street Board of Directors and Main Street members, and beverages were enjoyed by all.
The purpose of the evening was to raise money for Main Street: Greeneville to promote the organization's various activities, including economic development programs and tours of the downtown area.
Jann Mirkov, Main Street director, said, "We met our goal for the evening by being a sellout, and providing an event to get people into the downtown area, and the age-range of our guests was outstanding -- we had from the mid-20s to the mid-70s.
"Honestly, the success of the evening was accomplished by the best volunteers on the planet. It's the volunteers behind the scenes that make such an evening so much fun for the attendees."
Helping to ensure the success of the event were the following event partners: Express Wine & Spirits, Fatz, Flowers By Tammy, Grand Rental, Greeneville Beverage, Greeneville Oil & Petroleum, Grand Rental, and Towne and Country Event Rentals And Venues, LLC.
