Volunteers Needed for Progressive Dinner Party
April 28, 2011 - Carla Tracy
Volunteers are being sought for the third annual "Progressive Dinner Party Through Lahaina’s Historic Sites," to be held on two evenings, Friday, May 13 and Saturday, May 14 from 5:45 to 10 p.m.
Basically, the Progressive Dinner is a chef-prepared, three-course feast. Attendees are taken on a tour to three different museums or historic sites in old Lahaina. The museums and sites serve as venues for each course served.
“The evening will also include a dinner theater show, live music and a narrated historical tour as you travel by trolley between the sites,” says Theo Morrison, executive director of the Lahaina Restoration Foundation, sponsor of the gourmet affair.
Participating Lahaina chefs are Mark Ellman of Mala Ocean Tavern, Sheldon Simeon of Star Noodle, and Ryan Luckey of Pineapple Grill. Each chef is volunteering his time and extensive talents to prepare a unique and elegant dinner for the occasion.
"We are seeking volunteers to assist with set-up, serving food and clean up," says Morrison. "The work is fun and it’s a great opportunity to meet like-minded people and get 'behind the scenes' at this exciting event."
Diners may choose either Friday or Saturday evening to attend. Cost of $135 per person includes dinner, beer and wine. Or purchase tickets by May 7 and pay just $250 for a party of two. All proceeds will benefit Lahaina Restoration Foundation, a nonprofit organization that works to restore, maintain and interpret the physical, historical and cultural legacy of Lahaina.
For tickets or to volunteer, call Lahaina Restoration Foundation at (808)-661-3262, Monday to Friday, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Or visit lahainarestoration.org.
