The Charlottesville 29 and McGuireWoods LLP are pleased to present the Charlottesville Mt. Rushmore Chefs Dinner.

Last year, five chefs were named to the Mt. Rushmore of Charlottesville chefs for their extraordinary contributions to the Charlottesville dining scene: Craig Hartman, Angelo Vangelopoulos, Melissa Close-Hart, and the duo of Tim Burgess and Vincent Derquenne.  On April 13, the birthday of Charlottesville’s original gourmand Thomas Jefferson, these elite chefs will come together at The Space Downtown for a once-in-a-lifetime Charlottesville culinary experience, honoring their achievements.

After a reception of the chefs’ hors d’oeuvres, guests will sit down for dinner — a set menu of five courses, each prepared by a different Mt. Rushmore chef.   Wines will be paired with each course.

Best of all, every penny of ticket sales will go to feed the area’s hungry, via the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank.  Each $250 donation for a ticket is enough to provide 1,000 meals to the area’s hungry.

Seating is limited, and only 100 tickets will be sold. They may be purchased here.

  • WHEN:        April 13, 2014, 6 p.m.
  • WHERE:      The Space Downtown, 210 W. Water St.
  • TICKETS:    $250 per person, all inclusive. Purchase yours here.
