Mac Edwards and other local chefs will be cookin’ up something good at this year’s Caritas Village Harvest Gala on November 17.
Tickets to the gala are $80, and proceeds will go towards Caritas’ vision to “break down walls of hostility between races to build trust between the rich and those made poor.”
Caritas Village has been open for about 18 years, and their executive director, Mac Edwards, is looking forward to preparing a farm-to-table meal at the gala this year. Edwards, formerly of McEwen’s, The Farmer, and Pharm2Fork, became Executive Director of Caritas in May, and he is grateful for the opportunity to work towards the betterment of the community.
In addition to a delicious meal and local music, the gala will have a cocktail hour with wine and craft cocktails. Also, Artist in Residence Jamond Bullock will do a live art piece to be auctioned off. Bullock’s piece and other art pieces will be available during the silent and live auctions. Joe Birch will be master of ceremonies and auctioneer of the gala.
Edwards has not finalized a menu for the gala yet, but he said that there will be a straightforward three-course meal complete with a salad, entree, and dessert. The goal for the gala is to use art, music, food, and hospitality to join people together, and attendees will be directly supporting this cause.
