Dinner Project Events
One of the fundraising tools the school will employ again this year to support its educational programs is by presenting a series of Dinner Project events. These dinners, which are open to the public and sold for $175 per person, feature an intimate dinner created by a guest volunteer local chef, complete with exquisite wine pairings, near the outdoor Garden Classroom on the school’s campus.
Each event is presented by a different volunteer chef, who will prepare a meal for 25-35 guests onsite. Past Dinner Project chefs have included Roger Stettler, Cow Pig Bun and Taverna; Sheldon Simeon, TINROOF, Isaac Bancaco, Andaz Resort Maui; Gary Johnson, Hana Ranch Provisions; Sean Christiansen, Maui Country Club; and Justin Pardo, Market Fresh Bistro. We are so grateful for their support!
