Check out the Highlights from our COVID-safe "Chefs In Action" fundraiser that took place on August 27, 2020 where we brought the party directly to the homes of our ticket holders and supporters. Next year we hope to once again gather in person. Thank you, Wicked Weed, Biltmore Wines, Celine and Company, and Devil's Foot for participating in this new format during this pandemic.

2. Ask for a refund.
3. Consider donating your ticket funds to Food Connection to assist us during this pandemic.
Times are difficult, but especially those who depend on us to feed their families. We will continue to do all that we can in the interim to help them. If you need to contact us regarding this please call 828-407-0353.
Chefs in Action is a chance to taste some of the delicious chef-prepared food that was once ending up in the trash, but now thanks to Food Connection, is being rescued and delivered to feed our neighbors in need. Eight of our donor/chef partners will be preparing small plates in stations throughout the venue. You'll have a chance to interact with each one of them and ask them about the impact of Food Connection.
