The 2011 Raiser Grazer for the Dallas Chapter of Les Dames d’Escoffier is this Sunday from 5pm-8pm at Cityplace. Les Dames is a wonderful national philanthropic organization made up entirely of professional women leaders in the fields of food, fine wine and hospitality. The Dallas chapter was started in 1984 and since then has donated almost $1 million in endowments, scholarships and grants. The annual fundraiser this weekend helps build the gifts that these amazing women of Dallas can give to up and coming women in the fields. Co-chairs for this year Sommelier Courtney Lusher of the Grape and Mynetta Cockrell will host 20 Dallas Chapter Chefs for food sampling, along with wine pairings, a silent auction, entertainment and cork pull. It is sure to be a fun evening celebrating our cities culinary arts for a great cause. Hope to see you there! Tickets available here.
