Weather, location, costumes bring out stompers for charity

First Citizens National Bank’s Chris Lanigan, center stomping, represents Team Grape Nuts, as his colleague Janet Norman, attempts to help balance him during the frenetic competition. Meanwhile, Team Litigraption: We Win or We Sue, of Buerger, Moseley, and Carson, were under some intense pressure with Tre Patton trying to keep his feet in check. Teammate Byron Carson seemed to provide great support.

Near perfect weather and an ideal setting on the grounds of the lush campus of O’More College of Design provided stompers and their supporters with a relaxing, festive afternoon last Saturday. (And, the large screen television appropriately displayed that provided live coverage of the Tennessee -Georgia football game.) 

The annual Grape Stomp’s popularity is anchored in the fun-filled, friendly competition it provides folks, as well as the opportunity to raise money for organizations that benefit the needs of women and children in our community. The event is part of the annual activities leading up to A Vintage Affair, which is held annually in the spring.

The winning team was Juicy “Grape” Couture with Ashley Tucker, Mary Grindstaff, Jen Porter Ross, Derek Brawders and Tim Couri taking first place. Best costume goes to “Friends with Benefits,” aka The Drury Group with team members Charles Pareigis, Roxanne Sanders, Julie Shimshack, Aimee Baggett, and Joe Jordan.
