Sparkly glasses are filled and the table is embellished with delectable sweet and savory bites. Everyone has met together to share the company of friends and family. Who wouldn’t love to come together for a delicious meal and lively conversation? A fine dining experience is a perfect blend of presentation and harmony. The warmth, laughter, surprise, and all of the little design details come together to make it complete. Butte-Glenn Medical Society Alliance (BGMSA) would like to present a fund-raising event showcasing the art of dining as you prepare to enjoy your meals together this season.
Save the date: A semi-formal evening gala will kick off at 7PM and continue until 10PM on Friday, October 4, 2013. The festivities will be located in the indoor pavilion at The Palms in Chico. Get ready for fine wine, hearty appetizers, and live music from our own local band Equinox! The evening Gala will include the dining room unveilings. Local designers, decorators, and shops spend months planning and outdoing each other for this exciting event. Our talented designers literally turn their designated spaces into dining room masterpieces! As they mingle, Gala ticket holders will be able to preview, vote on, and enjoy these displays before they are opened to the general public the following day.
Come visit The Palms on Saturday, October 5th from 10am to 4pm when the Art of Dining exhibit will be open to the public. Take time to stroll through and enjoy the dining room displays with friends and family. There will be craft and cooking demonstrations throughout the day. BGMSA has invited local musicians, local artists and artisan vendors to participate. There will be a highly anticipated fashion show by Buttons & Bows of Paradise. As you take in the sights and sounds, feel free to enjoy refreshments and gather ideas. Tickets will be available at the door on Saturday. BGMSA hopes that you will walk away enriched, inspired, and feeling good about supporting a worthwhile cause!
