April 12, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm$85 – $95
Central Oregon Locavore presents:
Grit: Resiliency in the High Desert
3rd Annual Faces of Farming Gala, Silent Auction and Farm to Table Feast
Do you love fresh, nourishing food and the hard-working souls who make it possible?
We invite you to join us, Thursday April 12th, at The Tetherow Resort Event Pavilion for an evening of artful and delicious surprise, designed to honor the hardy and dedicated people who grow and raise our food in Central Oregon.
This event will include a photograph narrative of our local farmers and ranchers, a silent auction, local wine, beer and cocktails, and an extensive menu showcasing the bounty of local farms and ranches brought to you by Chef Miguel and the culinary team at Tetherow.
This years theme is Resiliency in the High Desert. Our high plateau climate, short growing season, volcanic soil and water scarcity make farming and ranching a daily challenge for farmers and ranchers. To succeed one must be resilient, tough and steadfast. We want to honor that tenacity, and recognize it, for it takes a special individual to be a farmer or rancher in Central Oregon. One must have true GRIT.
Ticket includes sit-down formal dinner, one drink, dessert and an evening of elegance designed to support our local farms and ranchers.
Cocktails, beer, and wine will be available.
