Chefs Helping Heroes Dinner on the River April 20 Fundraiser
The 5th Annual Chefs Helping Heroes fundraiser was a huge success!
We are so grateful for our top Chefs who, again this year, donated their skills and the food for the event. We also would like to thank Joyce Domenico and Better Party Rentals for donating the rentals for the evening. Kathy Oldham and Laura Rogers worked for weeks on the beautiful decorations. Also, we would like to give special thanks to the US Marine Corps for providing the honor guard.
The evening started with a cocktail party with a well stocked bar, passed hors d’oeuvres, sushi, ceviche bar and a beautiful ice sculpture. The guests were then invited to dinner where they enjoyed beautifully prepared salad, dinner and dessert courses. Each course was served with a selection of fine wines donated by Bill Martin. Jammin Jim donated the music and entertainment for the evening. Harry MacArthur was auctioneer again this year for the live auction. The live auction items this year were extraordinary and we are very grateful for the donors who made the auction a huge success. This year, the fundraiser sold out in 3 weeks and was one of the most successful fundraisers yet. Thank you so much to everyone who offered the support needed to continue and expand our mission.
