The event is a major fundraising opportunity for the residents of St Luke’s Home and is a combination of fine cuisine from participating chefs of Senior Living homes, local celebrity judges and chefs, live music, raffles, and most importantly, friendship.

Some of the raffle items include gift baskets filled with teas or charcuterie items, handmade quilts, signed memorabilia like an Adia Barnes signed basketball.

Tickets range from $40-100 and include tastings, beverages, and more — depending on which ticket you decide to purchase.
