A Benefit for Food Gatherer’s
Food Gatherer’s is a local, independent non-profit organization, founded by Zingerman’s, whose mission is to fight hunger in Washtenaw County. The fourth annual Vampire’s Ball is a collaboration between Zingerman’s Roadhouse and bestselling author Elizabeth Kostova, who is passionate about giving back to her community.
Elizabeth Kostova will hold an advance reading of her forthcoming novel, The Swan Thieves, to be released in early 2010. Her novel is the story of an art-loving psychiatrist whose journey to discover the past tragedy which informs the life of his patient, renowned painter, Robert Olivier, takes him on a historical adventure through time from the late nineteenth to the late twentieth centuries and across two continents.
James Beard-nominated Chef Alex Young will craft a menu based around the geographical locations of the book and drawing on the book’s theme.
If we reach our goal of selling 80 seats to the dinner, we’ll have raised over $7000 for Food Gatherer’s, which is wonderful at a time when the demand on food banks is increasing. With the funds we’ll raise, we’ll provide over 18,000 meals for the hungry.
