May 2, 2013 WITN's Dave Jordan was the emcee Thursday night for the first ever International Taste of Greenville fundraiser for Vidant Children's Hospital which serves 29 counties in Eastern North Carolina.
Actress Faith Ford, known for her role on "Murphy Brown" and "Hope and Faith" as well as several movies spoke to the crowd. Thursday, she toured Children's Hospital and met with kids and parents. She says it is all amazing.
In addition to hearing from Faith, those attending the event at the Hilton in Greenville Thursday enjoyed great food from a variety of restaurants all across Pitt County while bidding on items during live and silent auctions.
The event wrapped up late Thursday night, and we'll let you know when we have a tally on the money raised for Children's Hospital.
