There will be great food, drinks, live entertainment, and fun. Details about ticket sales are to follow.

Volunteer chefs are needed to help make this event a success. We will ask chefs to prepare their own appetizer for up to 200 people. Each chef or group of chefs will be responsible for setting up their food station. Chefs will remain anonymous while participants taste all the appetizers. Guests will then vote on their favorite appetizer, and the chef with the most votes will win.
