Every first Sunday in May chefs from the Upper Valley’s best restaurants, artisan cheese makers, and beverage provisioners join together in a fundraiser to support the Upper Valley Haven, called “Chefs of the Valley.” The event, taking place at the Quechee Club from 4 to 6:30 pm, will be a gala where more than 300 guests will be able to sample cuisine prepared by these artists, and bid on silent auction items donated by local businesses and individuals.
“Chefs of the Valley is in its 7th year, and each year adds a new twist which makes the event even more fun. Last year food tables spilled out onto an outdoor terrace on one of the most spectacular days in May, our silent auction layout was improved for better viewing and the wine and beer selection was greatly expanded. We always have top-notch food from the area’s best chefs and fabulous local musicians who donate their time to play for the crowd. Come join us in 2013; you won’t be disappointed!”- Liz Verney, Development Director
