A wonderful annual event is taking place at Mimosa Grill this week in Charlotte, NC Saturday Sept 17 with a cocktail reception at 6 pm and a seated dinner at 7 pm. and I am happy to use this forum to tell you all about it. Tickets are still available and you can reserve your spot and start to make a difference in hundred’s of children’s lives by clicking here.
If you asked Chef Thomas Marlow and Chef Scott Wallen of the Harpers Group they would tell you its probably one of the most important dinners they do all year as it benefits Share Our Strength’s national No Kid Hungry Campaign to end childhood hunger.
NO CHILD SHOULD GROW UP HUNGRY IN AMERICA But one in five children struggles with hunger. Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign is ending childhood hunger in this nation by connecting kids in need with nutritious food and teaching families how to cook healthy, affordable meals. You can help surround kids with the nutritious food they need where they live, learn and play. Pledge to make No Kid Hungry a reality at NoKidHungry.org.
While Marlow and Wallen and Charlotte’s Harpers Group are the hosts of this year’s dinner, this evening features an outstanding line up of female chefs of note from across the southeast and promises to be an incredible event with the likes of Chef Ashley Auer from Cooks & Soldiers in Atlanta, GA; Chef Emily Hahn from Warehouse Bar + Kitchen in Charleston, SC; Chef Annie Pettry from Decca Restaurant in Louisville, KY; and Charlotte’s own Chef Alyssa Wilen from Chef Alyssa’s Kitchen all sharing the Mimosa Grill Kitchen to bring this wonderful meal to the table.
Take this unique opportunity to spend this Saturday evening at Mimosa Grill and see what this great group of talented ladies can bring to the table.
