Event description


Please join us in a celebration of love and community as we raise funds to support our friend Alex Schulte and his family. We will be hosting a 5-course chef dinner created and executed by the best chefs in the West Michigan area to help support and honor our friend. We will have a live fire action station kitchen in the center of the dining experience to build all the courses before your own eyes. You will have the opportunity to see, feel, smell and taste what a chef does to execute works of art under fire. This event will be hosted in the panoramic all glass walled Creston Golden Age event space located on the second floor of Creston Brewery. Seating is limited so please make sure to get your tickets to not miss this event.
