Vampire’s Ball: A Fundraiser for Food Gatherers

$126/dinner
Proceeds from this event are donated to Food Gatherers

The Vampire’s Ball is now its 5th year. It was begun by Elizabeth Kostova, bestselling author of The Historian, as a way to give back to her community.  Every year, we’ve collaborated with Kostova on a “spooky” theme and a corresponding menu. With lots of help from Food Gatherer’s we make this one fun fundraiser. We typically raise about $10,000 for Food Gatherers each year, which translates to about 26,000 meals that can be provided to hungry individuals. Please help us fight hunger where we live!

This year the theme is Day of the Dead with a traditional menu reflecting the Latin American holiday. Elizabeth Kostova will be reading from traditional Mexican literature and James Beard nominated Chef Alex Young will create the menu.

Costumes are encouraged. (But not required, of course.)
