Leap with Aria to Bonne Santé Culinary Showcase for National Kidney Foundation on February 28
Thanks to 2016 having leap-year status, there’s more time to squeeze in worthwhile activities such as the inaugural Bonne Santé, a culinary showcase and fundraising event taking place on Sunday, February 28 and benefitting National Kidney Foundation efforts in Alabama, Georgia and Mississippi. (Granted, February’s extra day is Monday, February 29, but close enough.) Chef Gerry Klaskala of Aria will be among the Georgia chefs preparing and serving their signature dishes in the open setting of Magnolia Barn at Pine Knoll Farms in Appling, Georgia near Augusta. Fine wines, spirits, local produce, prizes, inspirational stories and a silent auction round out the extravaganza. Event begins at 2 p.m. Buy tickets online ($100 individual, $350 family, $700 VIP group of eight). Donations are always welcome.
