Griffin (Virtual) Gala
- Comfort of Your Own Home
Join us from the comfort of your own home for a one of a kind culinary experience featuring authentic Italian wines and cuisine prepared by YOU! As a gala attendee, you will receive recipes and step by step video instructions on how to prepare authentic pasta dishes and entrees presented by Vincenzino Amatruda, Executive Chef of the Villa Maria Cooking School in Ravello, Italy on the Amalfi Coast.
You will be instructed on how to shop for and prepare all your ingredients ahead of time so that on the evening of the gala, you and your guests are ready to cook wonderful Italian food under the expert guidance of Chef Vincenzino from his Ravello kitchen. You will enjoy the meal you prepare with an assemblage of Allegrini’s premier wines as Sommelier Robin Shay takes you on a journey through the Italian countryside. Invite your family and friends for an unforgettable, entertaining evening of good food, good wine, and good company while supporting a good cause.
Support of this year’s gala will raise funds to develop and sustain programs and services that address the wide-ranging health care needs of the communities Griffin serves ensuring access to innovative, high-quality care in a healing, person-centered environment.
