CUMMING, Ga. — About 100 guests took part in what has become a holiday tradition in Cumming.

The Helpings of Hope dinner celebration was again held at Tam's Backstage Restaurant, 215 Ingram Avenue in Cumming.

The event, put together by the Forsyth County Community Connection, honored volunteers and guests including individuals and families in need from Faith's House, Abba House, Bald Ridge Boys Lodge, Jesse's House, Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS) and The Place of Forsyth County.

The festive mood was contagious, attendees said. The desire to help others caught on quickly as some of the guests got up and helped to clean up and serve the holiday food.
