The theme for the fourth annual SAVOR dining event benefiting Hospital Hospitality House of Richmond is "Southern Hospitality from Virginia to the West Indies."
"Three of our chefs are coming from St. Maarten in the French and Dutch West Indies, and our other chefs are Virginia chefs," says Babs Jackson, president and CEO of HHH. "They're going to be lending a menu that combines the best of the Caribbean and Virginia." The event will take place Sept. 28 in the John Marshall Ballroom, starting at 6 p.m. with cocktails and a silent auction, followed by a five- or six-course dinner with wine pairing.
Jackson says that the chefs will present the courses as they are being served. Past auctions have included experiences such as trips to China or chefs cooking multicourse meals at the winners' homes.
Tickets cost $300 per person with all proceeds going to HHH, a nonprofit that provides lodging and nonmedical services for people who come to Richmond for specialized medical care. (Richmond magazine is a sponsor.) The goal is to raise $175,000 this year. For more information, call 828-6901 or visit hhhsavor.org .
