All Event Proceeds Benefit BackPack Weekend Food Program, Inc

The 4th annual Dining at the Chef’s Table is serving up another exciting event – and it’s back and better than ever this year! Guests will enjoy an upbeat soiree featuring specialty foods inspired and served up by local Celebrity Servers, live opera performances and more! And if you’re feeling competitive (a little competition never hurt anyone), guests can vote on their favorite specialty food or take their chance at “Instagrab” to walk away with a guaranteed prize. The event will also include a live and silent auction with bidding through Give Smart, an online bidding system. This year’s event will not disappoint!
