Event Description:
Register now online and come celebrate local businesses and community champions, and meet your 2019 Board of Directors, at this Black Tie optional gala event with cocktails, dinner, awards and music.  We are excited to announce that acclaimed Chef, Television Host, and Cookbook Author Vivian Howard as our Keynote Speaker. 

Born in Deep Run, NC to tobacco and hog farming parents, Vivian's upbringing was steeped in the Southern food traditions of her neighbors.  She honed her culinary skills and love for food working in the kitchens of some of New York's most esteemed restaurants and training under some of the most cutting-edge chefs from Scott Barton of Voyage, to Wylie Dufresne and Sam Mason of WD-50, and later with Jean Georges Vongerichten at his critically-acclaimed Spice Market.

Vivian is best known for her award-winning restaurants in Kinston, NC, Chef and the Farmer, followed by the Boiler Room, and Benny's Big Time Pizzeria in Wilmington, as well as her award-winning documentary PBS television series, A Chef's Life, celebrating Eastern North Carolina food traditions.  Now after five seasons, a Daytime Emmy, Peabody award, and James Beard award for Outstanding Personality/Host, Vivian will be launching a new series PBS series in 2019, an hour-long, primetime show telling food stories of the American South in the context of global food traditions.  Vivian has also published an award-winning cookbook, Deep Run Roots:  Stories and Recipes from My Corner of the South.

Our Cocktail Hour from 6 to 7 p.m. will feature the swinging jazz sounds of Tea Cup Gin, while our after party will feature Jim Parker and The Hillcasters.  Thank you to our Silver Entertainment Sponsor Ashby Insurance Agency - State Farm.
