On Wednesday, September 27th, the Flagler Museum hosted a picnic for the staff of Feeding South Florida in support of their great work. Following an enjoyable dinner in the Museum’s restored Cocoanut Grove, Henry Flagler’s Gilded Age mansion, Whitehall, was lit orange in recognition of Hunger Action Month.
