WHERE ARE THE DINNERS HELD?
Dinners are held separately at each participating restaurant. Each Tables of 10 is treated to a chef curated including a minimum of three courses with drink and/or win pairings at the restaurant of their choice.
WHAT ARE THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE PARTICIPATING RESTAURANTS?
To participate, restaurants agree to donate a Table of 10 which includes a minimum of three courses and drink/wine pairings. Foodie Philanthropy will recruit the table host, sell the seats, and ensure each patron is informed of where to go and what to expect. Gratuity for the servers will be taken care of by Foodie Philanthropy.
WHAT ARE RESPONSIBILITIES OF A TABLE HOST?
Most hosts prefer to purchase the entire table and invite their friends to join for an evening of fun. Some hosts like to invite a few friends and leave the table open to others or have their guests pay for each seat separately. Whichever the preferred way of filling the seats, the goal is to fill all 10 seats to raise as much money as possible to support that year’s Charity of Choice.
AS A TABLE HOST, MAY I PURCHASE A WHOLE TABLE?
Of course! That is the preferred method of hosting. Restaurants selections are subject to availability so please let us know your preferences early. Contact Michael Crain, founder of Foodie Philanthropy, at MDC@FoodiePhilanthropy.org to make arrangements or express interest.
AS A PATRON, MAY I REQUEST A SEAT AT A PARTICULAR RESTAURANT?
While many table hosts purchase an entire table for their group, seats are sold online to the public as they are made available. When seats are made available at communal table or released by table hosts, individuals can pick the best cuisine at the preferred price.
HOW MUCH DOES A SEAT COST?
Seat costs range anywhere from $100 to $250, depending upon the restaurant and menu being served. Purchases include gratuity and admission to the after-party.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE COST OF A SEAT?
Included in the cost of the seat is at least a full chef curated 3-course meal with drink/wine pairings and admission to the after-party.
HOW DO WE PURCHASE SEATS?
Seats can be purchased online via this website. All seats go on sale in early January.
WHO IS THE CHARITY RECIPIENT?
