Field to Feast
September 16 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Imagine gathering in a pasture next to an orchard enjoying a delicious meal prepared with food that was grown in our region, and paired with the perfect glass of wine. This is exactly what our Field to Feast event will be on Saturday. September 16, at The Orchard, located on Highway 99 just north of Emporia. This casual yet elegant event will begin at 4:00 in the afternoon with a reception and hors d’oeuvres. Dinner will be served at one long table setting with a beautiful setting overlooking a pond and the orchard, enjoying a four course meal with a wine pairing for each course. We only have one hundred tickets so hurry and order yours today. Tickets are $100 each.
Why hold an event like this? Field to Feast will be an event that encompasses the agriculture, business and educational communities together. Food being used in this four course meal will come from producers in our region, and will promote sustainability. The meal will be prepared by the Culinary Arts program at Flint Hills Technical College and will assist students in learning more about the skills and responsibilities of catering top-notch cuisine to a large group. Cash tips from the evening will be given to the culinary arts program to assist students in attending state and national competitions. As we all know funding has been cut, and additional funds to assist these students are needed. Finally, it will act as a fundraiser for the Emporia Area Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber’s mission is to be Proactive in Creating an Environment for Business and Community Success. We do not believe in doing fundraisers for the only purpose of raising money. We do fundraisers that we believe will also help maintain a sustainable business and community environment.
We could not put on an event like this without the support of our underwriters PrairieLand Partners and Longbine Auto Plaza. For more information or to make your reservation go to: http://emporiakschamber.org/field-to-feast/ or call 620-342-1600.
