A snapshot of our beneficiary:
CHOW is a nonprofit designed to provide services for military veterans through cooking therapy, cookware donations, culinary education, and business advice for anyone from home chefs to aspiring food truck or restaurant owners. Our goal is to raise money for rolling classrooms so CHOW can expand their services and training for military veterans.
And you ask, what do you get for $160.00? You get live music by the Mighty Kicks, dinner, an open bar and tastings. There will be a live and silent auction that will include vacation getaways, sports autographed memorabilia, the doll house that you have always wanted, and so much more.
