Zest Fest 2011- Helping to Fight Hunger

January 18th, 2011

Time to break out that ball gown or tuxedo. Why you ask? This February, an amazing cause called Zest Fest, which benefits the Central Virginia Food Bank and Meals on Wheels Serving Central Virginia is coming back to town.

Last year this event raised $165,000 dollars to feed the Central Virginia Area. Sixteen local chefs will lend their expertise to the event and the food served. Including Tuffy Stone of A Sharper Palate, a frequent caterer with our Brides at the Mansion will be their cooking up what is sure to be nothing less than mouth watering. Eight wineries will provide their finest wines for the evening also.

The event will include a silent auction, exciting live auction, dancing, and two Fight Against Hunger raffles. The first raffle includes a trip for two to Napa Valley for three nights and the second raffle will be a trip for two to Barcelona, Spain for six nights. Tickets are $150 dollars a person and include a cocktail hour, a extensive sit down dinner including Virginia Wine pairings with each course, dessert, dancing, and your entry into both raffle drawings. We hope you take time to help those in need in Central Virginia.

We here at the Mansion are also participating as we’re a proud supporter of Feed More. Visit the Historic Richmond Inns Blog here to learn more.
