Tomorrow: Garces Gala (And We’ve Got The Menus)
Good news for all of you who have purchased your Garces Gala tickets: we have menus.
And good news for those of you who haven’t gotten your tickets yet: There are still general admission tickets available (but the VIP tickets are sold out).
For those of you who don’t know, the 3rd Annual Garces Gala will be held tomorrow, October 29th, starting at 6:30 p.m. (VIP doors open at 5:30 for a meet-and-greet with all of the event chefs and a special seated dinner). The Garces Foundation is hosting the event to benefit Philadelphia’s immigrant community by helping them to gain access to medical, educational, and nutritional services. The event will feature tons of food samplings from Philadelphia’s best chefs, as well as silent auctions.
Tickets are still available for the event – and if you (still) aren’t convinced about dropping two-hundo or so for these tickets, the menus below will definitely make the decision easier.
