Danville, VA - It's the fifth annual Corks and Forks Event hosted by the Danville Science Center Friday.

Their sold out event will have 400 folks all there to taste wine, bid at the silent auction and donate to the science center.

Executive Director Jeff Liverman says the money goes toward all of the educational programs at the center.

"This is one of our most important events through the year. It draws in a lot of community members, a lot of people participate. We have donations from auction to contributing to the event and then buying a ticket and being here," said Liverman.

The tickets did cost $40 dollars each, which means a lot of money going to a good cause. The event starts at 6:30 p.m.
