Celebrity Cuisine

2015 Celebrity Cuisine Was a Huge Success

Our 2015 Celebrity Cuisine was a huge success! Community Harvest would like to express our sincere gratitude for the 23 successful Celebrity Cuisine events hosted by the Tri-County Restaurant Association to benefit Community Harvest. Celebrity Cuisine continues to be our primary source of income to cover program expenses and expansion.

Celebrity Cuisine would not be possible without the many months of planning orchestrated by the Tri-County Restaurant Association, the generous restaurant participants, celebrity chefs, sponsors, and nearly one hundred volunteers who work so hard to make this event a success. THANK YOU to everyone who attended, volunteered, and participated in 2015! The date for our 2016 Celebrity Cuisine will be announced shortly. We promise that it will continue to be “a laid back, well-priced, feeding frenzy” that offers attendees unlimited access to appetizers, entrée samples, beer, wine, and desserts while listening to music and bidding on our silent auction.
