Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation (DCWAF), one of the nation’s premier fundraising organizations, is bringing a new event to the Emerald Coast on Saturday, January 21, 2017, at 6 p.m. in Miramar Beach. Inspired by Jacksonville, Florida’s Legend Series, The Foundation will present Volume 1, the first in a series of pop-up dinners.
Tickets for Volume 1 are $250 and are now on sale online at dcwaf.org/tickets.
In order to maintain the event’s intimate atmosphere, a limited number of tickets will be available.
“We are very excited about this unique event. Our supporters love wine dinners and we thought it was time to elevate the experience. Great food and wine plus a few new features that will set this dinner apart from all others,” said Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation President, John Russell. “The best part is it is all a surprise, and who doesn’t like a surprise?”
Foundation members request that patrons bring their sense of adventure and an open mind to Volume 1, because dinner will be served with a twist. When tickets go on sale, patrons will be purchasing with almost no information.
The event location, theme, menu and entertainment will all be withheld until the day of the event. All that will be disclosed are the chefs involved and the date/time.
Volume 1 will showcase a themed, multi-course menu created by some of the best in the culinary industry paired with exquisite wines and entertainment. On the morning of the event, patrons will be notified via email with details regarding the location and theme of Volume 1 as well as attire suggestions.
The specifics regarding the menu, wine selections and entertainment will remain a surprise.
Scott Schwartz, co-founder and chef of the Legend Series and Chef/Owner of 29 South will be spearheading the culinary team. Joining Schwartz will be Destin local and Bijoux Executive Chef, Jack McGuckin, Craig Richards of St. Cecilia and The Optimist in Atlanta, GA and Graham Laborde of Bernadine’s in Houston, Texas.
