gala and 2018 sponsorship opportunities

Durham has an incredible food scene. It also has a significant problem with family homelessness. Featuring some of Durham’s most talented chefs, our series of unique, ticketed fine dining events raises money for Families Moving Forward’s programs and services for families experiencing homelessness. Each dinner in the Chefs for Change Series includes a cocktail hour with hors d’oeuvres and a seated three course meal paired with complimentary wine and beer.

The Chefs for Change Series Gala will be on Friday, December 8, 2017, and will be the highlight of the series. Each of our esteemed chefs will provide a signature hors d’oeuvre and desserts are being provided by Durham’s best bakeries, restaurants and catering companies. There will also be live music and a silent auction! We are expecting to sell 300-350 tickets to our Finale.

The Gala on December 8th will be the kickoff for the 2018 Chefs for Change Series. We will award our 2017 chefs and unveil the line-up of the 2018 chefs. As a sponsor, your name will be associated with the December Gala and all of the dinners in the 2018 Chefs for Change Series!

Please visit fmfnc.org/ChefsForChange for more information and contact Shana Carignan, Development Director at shana@fmfnc.org to register as a sponsor or fill out the form at the bottom of the page.
