Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner!
Thanks to all that attended 2016's Guess Who's Coming to Dinner!
Austin’s most delicious fundraiser will be held on Saturday evening, Feb. 4, 2017. Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner lets guests pick from a list of dinners in private homes. There, they will make new friends and get caught up with old ones over fine wine and cuisine. Then everyone will meet up for a dessert & champagne reception. 100 percent of each reservation donation will go to Project Transitions to benefit those living with HIV/AIDS.
Here’s how Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner works:
The “event” consists of various dinner parties held simultaneously in private homes scattered throughout the city. Dinners commence at 7pm. These fine dining extravaganzas can range in size from very intimate to over-the-top festival-sized.
Pick your three favorite dinner themes & shortly before the event, we’ll tell you where you’re dining. We will do our best to place you at the dinner of your choice. Once there, you will enjoy a surprise guest list, feast on wonderful food and make new friends and catch up with old acquaintances.
After all the dinners are over, everyone meets for a dessert & champagne reception with guests from every party.
At the conclusion of the reception, the Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner raffle is drawn and a lucky winner will be named.
Are you interested in volunteering for this event? You should be!
