We will be doing a White Elephant Gift Exchange so please bring a gift (up to $20) to get in on the fun trade off of gifts!

Also, with all of you talented chefs out there we would love a small sample of your work that could be packaged and given to all our guests in the goodie bag Chef Cathy is organizing. Please bring some of your sample yummies enough for 25 people and we will get them handed out!
