gala sponsorships

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 Finale 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 400 tickets to our Finale. 

If you are interested in sponsoring the Inaugural Chefs for Change Gala, please fill out the form at the bottom of the page.
