THOMASVILLE, Ga. — A Thomasville tradition is bringing people throughout the community together to celebrate the southern city's history.

The 26th Annual Pilau Dinner kicked off earlier on Tuesday.

People who came got to enjoy a home cooked meal, all for the benefit of the Thomasville History Center. This happens every year on election day.

Anne Mccudden, executive director of Thomasville History Center, appreciates how much support this event brings in for the History Center.

"I think it just shows that the community cares about its history but it also cares about its non-profits which there are a lot, and we are one of them," said Mccudden. "They understand that events like this help us grow."

Last year, the fundraiser sold more than 1,400 meals.

All the proceeds to Tuesday's southern supper will go to support the history center's programs such as their summer camps.
