Chef Hosch is preparing a delightful array of internationally themed food stations, which will also include options for vegetarians and vegans. For those wishing, it is a BYOB event.


We welcome table hosts and/or groups for this event.  A table host covers the table cost of $240 and invites up of eight guests of his/her choice.  A group may also go together and share the cost of eight guests at a table for the cost of $240.

There is also a limited opportunity to come as an individual guest for the cost of $30 per person.  Individuals will have an opportunity to enjoy conversation from being seated at a table with other guests from our community.  If you have a request to be seated with someone specific, please call to make us aware.  We will accommodate requests to the best of our ability.  Due to the set up of this year’s banquet, there will be generous opportunities for mingling and greeting those beyond one’s immediate table.

If you are unable to attend the banquet, but would like to make a donation, feel free to visit our online donation page.
