Chef Michael’s Catering will once again provide delicious small-plate offerings at the annual Vintage Carolina gala charity event. Vintage Carolina is Community Foundation of Henderson County’s signature event celebrating local philanthropy.
This year’s gala, titled “Now and Forever: The Heart of Giving,” takes place Monday, March 7, 2016, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Hendersonville Country Club. Cost is $120 per person, and proceeds help support CFHC’s charity work. CFHC funds help everything from animal welfare and the environment to health, education and scholarships. 2016 marks the charity gala’s eleventh year.
Chef Michael’s Catering provides elegant, upscale and casual food for parties such as weddings, galas, and rehearsal dinners, as well as corporate, government and non-profit meetings, events and fundraisers. “This is the third year we have been invited to participate,” says Michael McKnight, executive chef. “Our relationship to community is extremely important to Judy and me – always has been.”
Chef Michael’s Catering handles events throughout Western North Carolina, including Asheville, Hendersonville, and surrounding counties.
