Duner’s Auction: Holiday Party for 50

by Charlottesville29


Here is your chance to experience Duner’s like you never have before, while helping to feed the area’s hungry: The Charlottesville 29 Restaurant Auctions. Along with all of the other restaurants in The Charlottesville 29, Duner’s has created a once-in-a-lifetime experience for whoever pledges the highest donation to The Blue Ridge Area Food Bank. Thanks to the generosity of Duner’s, Pollak Vineyards, and Brewing Tree Beer Company, the entire winning bid goes directly to the food bank. And, thanks to the efficiency of the food bank, each dollar donated creates four meals for the area’s hungry.

The Duner’s signature experience for The Charlottesville 29 Restaurant Auctions:

Holiday Party for 50

Some call Duner’s the happiest place on earth, which means there may be no better place for a holiday party. This December, the auction winner will have all of Duner’s to themselves for a party of up to fifty guests. While guests gather beside a roaring fire with the auction winner’s favorite holiday music playing, Chef Laura Fonner’s kitchen will send out a steady stream of canapés and appetizers. The auction winner may leave the food in Fonner’s hands, or make their from selections from a wide array of options, like pan fried pork and shrimp dumplings, smoked trout mousse on everything crackers, or General Tso’s sweetbread nuggets. Likewise, the winner may let Pastry Chef Linda Steiner choose the sweet treats, or make their own choices from options like red velvet cupcakes, bourbon pecan pie squares, and eggnog cheesecake squares. Beverages for holiday toasts will include wine from Pollak Vineyards, beer from Brewing Tree Beer Company, and Duner’s own housemade eggnog.

What better way to ring in the holidays? It’s Duner’s Holiday Party for 50.

Note: The auction winner’s party may last up to three hours. The auction winner will schedule their party on any of the following Mondays or Tuesdays this December: 2, 3, 9, 10, 16, or 17.
