Parties w/a Purpose

Life together can be so delightful (and delicious)!

Working to strengthen community ties can be the most rewarding time spent. Meeting new people, reconnecting with old friends and basking in the warmth of elevated conversation, fine wine, and delectable comestibles are just a few of the benefits when sharing a meal together.  

This year we have partnered with twelve SLOCA families and are proud to present a season of dining experiences unavailable anywhere else. We give our heartfelt thanks to each and every host, chef, winemaker and farmer who have created these culinary adventures for you to participate in.  

With so many parties to choose from, you are sure to find one that suits your fancy! Make it a date night or get a few friends together and call it an evening of communal friendship, fine food and support for SLOCA.
