There is a change in the air, and for Gulf Coast Humane Society’s biggest fundraiser it comes as a refreshing one. After eight successful years of hosting the gala-style ‘A Home for the Holidays’, there will be many different aspects to GCHS’ biggest fundraiser of the year, from the theme to the date and also to the location. We want to keep this fundraiser which sustains GCHS throughout the year fresh but the ultimate goal remains the same, and that’s to provide for the shelter animals. No longer will the night feature a gala formal dress-up theme, instead it will be a more casual and relaxed atmosphere, highlighted by Fort Myers area chefs cooking some of their best creations.
The night of entertainment will be entitled “Celebrity Chef Festival” and be moved from early November to Thursday, January 17, from 5:30-9pm. The location is another exciting change with the event being moved to Six Bends Harley Davidson. They are pet friendly and will provide an entertaining venue for our Celebrity Chef Festival debut. The evening will include Hors D’oeuvres, dinner, open bar, live/silent auction, live music and adorable pets. The food will be prepared by 8-10 local chefs at stations that can be sampled throughout the evening.
The sponsorship packages will remain the same as ‘A Home for the Holidays’ and just as important. We are currently updating the design and will have them out very soon.
If you have any questions about this fun and exciting event, or would like any additional information about other ways to get involved with the event, please contact GCHS Events Coordinator, Paul Howell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We sincerely hope that you feel these changes will be refreshing and fun and become part of Celebrity Chef Festival 2019!
