Peruse the silent auction while enjoying hors d’oeuvres and wine generously provided by Small Lot Wines. Raise your paddle to bid on exciting live auction experiences in support of AFMSP!

The three course dinner prepared by Minikahda Chef Ferris Shiffer and Chef Vincent Francoual, is a set menu:

Le Poisson : Shrimp Crusted Fish, English Pea Coulis, Shrimp Gastrique
La Viande : Braised Beef Short Ribs, Potato Pavé, Cipollini Onion Confit,
Asparagus & Baby Carrot Bundle
Le Dessert : Hazelnut-Chocolate Cake “Louis XV”

Dinner will include wine pairings, and we are excited that the French vineyard owner will also be present at the event. We are happy to accommodate any dietary requirements as long as we are made aware of them in advance.
