The Dinner for Dance fundraiser features a delectable four-course dinner with fine wine and truly exciting entertainment. Proceeds will provide scholarships for at-risk teens to attend arts education classes through the Hope Stone Kids program.
On Thursday, October 17, Hope Stone New Orleans will host the Dinner for Dance at the Lighthouse Glass (743 Camp Street, New Orleans, LA 70130) from 7:00-10:00pm. Chef Christopher Lynch from Atchafalaya Restaurant and other local food and beverage sponsors will create delicious dishes using in-season and local products. The menu features hor d'oeuvres, a chilled soup and/or salad, coq au vin, and dessert buffet in the lighthouse. A selection of beverages from NOLA Brewery, Wines Unlimited, Artisan Fine Wines and VINO Wholesale will be paired with the meal.
A full table seats up to ten people and is available for $1,000, the cost of arts education for three teens over the entire school year. Half-tables of up to five people are available for $500, and individual tickets can be purchased for $100.
This is great way to share a tasty meal with your business associates, colleagues, and friends while supporting a very worthy cause!
