If you have been to the farm or Catholic Charities office lately, you have probably heard the buzz ~ we have been busy planning a big party and fundraiser at the farm on October 4th!
It is going to be a special night featuring food grown by our farmers. Attendees will dine under the stars on food grown, harvested, and prepared only inches from the table.
While sampling hors d’oeuvres prepared and served by New Roots farmers, enjoy a silent auction. As you find your seat, and are served the “rainbow” course prepared by Heidi VanPelt-Belle, Executive chef and co-founder of the Westside neighborhood restaurant Fud, live performances by refugee youth will begin. A hearty main course prepared by chef and restaurateur Todd Schulte of Genessee Royale Bistro and Happy Gillis Café will celebrate the farm’s bounty by pairing with Boulevard beer. The evening will culminate with a very special dessert created by Executive Chef Michael Foust of The Farmhouse, and will be accompanied by the second live entertainment portion of the evening, featuring ethnic dances by the New Roots community. Locally roasted coffee will also be in abundance thanks to The Roasterie's generous donation. We hope that you will join us to celebrate a great season!
Join us at the Juniper Gardens Training farm, 100 Richmond Avenue, KC KS 66101, on Tuesday October 4th, 2011 at 6pm (rain date Wednesday, October 5th) for an elegant and organic fundraiser in support of the New Roots for Refugees program.
