Homegrown products helped an Albany non-profit group raise money to help child abuse victims. The Lily Pad hosted the Farm to Fork benefit.

Everything on the menu at Thursday's dinner was made from products grown within a 60-mile radius of Albany. Local chefs prepared the food for Lily Pad supporters.

"It's been difficult in this economy," said Lily Pad Director, Karen Kemp. Like all non-profits, we've struggled, and our numbers are really high. We see about 1,00 victims of child abuse and sexual assault annually, and so this events enables us to provide a direct service to those victims."

The Lily Pad recently expanded. It took over centers in Cairo and Thomasville and now offers more services there so more victims can get exams and counseling closer to home. All proceeds will go towards the Lilly Pad.
