Avenel has a grant for $7500 from the Greater Lynchburg Community Trust to be used for the renovation of the Avenel kitchen. That’s the seed money, the Avenel Foundation is actually going to need a total of $25,000 in order to complete the job. That’s why it is in fundraising mode now.
Avenel’s kitchen is cramped. Heather Williams, of Olde Liberty Station, is one of the caterers who frequently works events at Avenel.
