soiree strawberries

This year is a special Soiree, fundraising for the very land the strawberries are grown on, with a guest chef, and tickets that are donations too!

We completed the fundraising for the land, and now are raising the last funds needed for the legal fees to finalize the farm affordability transfer to Mount Grace. Read more about the project here.

 Tickets for the dinner start at $45. If you purchase a ticket for more than $45, the balance of your payment will be fully tax deductible and will be used to fund final fees for Mount Grace's purchase of the Montague farmland. Find out about their Campaign for Affordable Farms!

   Please select the ticket type you'd like and then click "Buy Now" (at which point you can specify the number you want to buy).

Buying tickets here will get your name on the list for dinner. Also please make sure to type in your name, and any dinner requests for vegan or gluten free, in the comments area of the PayPal checkout.
