The 9th Annual “Appetite for Life” Gala will be held on Friday, May 10, 2013 at the Golden Valley Golf and Country Club and will begin at 6:30pm. This year’s event will be held reception style with guests enjoying food prepared at nine various chef stations featuring ten premier Minnesota chefs. Each guest will have an assigned table for the option to sit and enjoy their food.
This interactive culinary event and silent auction raises funds for Project Turnabout’s “Another Chance for Life” fund, which provides scholarships to individuals and families seeking treatment and recovery from a gambling addiction. 100% of the event proceeds solely benefit patient and family aid.
This year’s event will utilize BidPal for the silent auction. Guests can use their own smartphone or receive a BidPal device pre-loaded with every auction item including description, photo, value, increments, and donor information. At auction end, guests know immediately which items they’ve received and can instantly check out.
Over 300 attendees are expected and will enjoy an evening of fine food prepared by renowned local chefs, great entertainment and unique silent auction items. In addition, guests will leave with a heightened awareness of the critically needed services Project Turnabout’s Vanguard Compulsive Gambling Treatment Program provides to patients and families throughout the state of Minnesota, across the United States and beyond.
The event will once again be hosted by Chefs Larry D’Amico and Seth Bixby Daugherty and Twin Cities Foodie Sue Zelickson and will be MC’d by WCCO Reporter Susie Jones.
