As our first year at our forever farm comes to a close, we turn by necessity to strategies to sustain and improve our efforts into the future. Owning an aging farm cost more to sustain than we ever imagined but with your help and support everything is possible.
In this issue of Horsepower, I have been given the privilege of discussing our upcoming Dining in the Dark Fundraiser with you.
What is Dining in the Dark? Dining in the Dark is a simplistically elegant event that will bring together socially conscious community leaders, industry professionals and caring citizens for an evening of fine dining and entertainment to raise awareness about disabilities and resources for LTR. Guests will enjoy dining in low light conditions while wearing eyeshades to fully immerse themselves in the experience by relying on their taste, texture, and smell to guide them through their culinary adventure.
Who will be attending the Dining in the Dark? Ticket holders will have the unique experience of dining with both internationally renowned and local celebrities. Headlining the evening will be blind chef Christine Ha, winner of Master Chef Season III, bestselling author and successful restauranteur. Working in conjunction with Chef Ha will be Executive Chef Jasmine West representing the Bourbon Bayou Kitchen, who was recently featured on the TBS reality show, “Rat in the Kitchen”.
Entertainment will be provided by Scott MacIntyre, blind pianist and American Idol finalist from season eight. You Tube phenomenon Tommy Edison from the Tommy Edison Experience will Co-Emcee the event in partnership with Loudoun County’s own “Network Ninja,” Geoff Crawley from House Cleaning Heroes. All featured guests will raise awareness about disabilities by sharing their personal stories of how they overcame adversity to build successful careers for themselves while inspiring hope in others.
When will this amazing event take place? The Dining in the Dark will take place on Thursday, October 13, 2022, at the Bourbon Bayou Kitchen (our presenting sponsor) in Ashburn from 6-10 PM.
The price of one ticket includes a five-course meal with wine pairings and the privilege of making a difference in someone’s life.
