A Meal to Remember: Sold Out!!

This year marks the 23rd anniversary of “A Meal to Remember” when it returns to Atlanta this fall to raise money for Meals On Wheels Atlanta, a program of Senior Citizen Services, that has been delivering daily meals to homebound seniors in the metro area since 1970. Tony Conway will be honored this year for his commitment to Senior Citizen Services and Meals On Wheels Atlanta.

This year’s elegant black-tie reception is being chaired by Su Longman, Debbie Dean, and Eileen Rosencrants. This year’s theme will be “Siente el sabor Latino” exploring the tastes and sensations of Latin America. The event will be held at the St. Regis Atlanta on Friday, November 5. Guest chefs are Chef Aar√≥n Sanchez (Paladar and Centrico, New York), Chef Carmen Gonzalez (chef consultant, New York), and Chef Douglas Rodriguez (D. Rodriguez Cuba at the Astor Hotel in Miami Beach), and Chef David Ramirez (Rosen Shingle Creek, Orlando). The dinner will be coordinated by Jonathan Jerusalmy, Executive Chef at the St. Regis Atlanta. Wines will be paired and chosen by Michael Venezia of United Distributors.

A live and silent auction featuring food and wine, trips, fine art, and more will be held in conjunction with the dinner. The event organizers hope to raise more than $400,000 which will provide more than 61,500 nutritious meals for homebound seniors.

Proceeds generated by “A Meal to Remember” benefit Meals On Wheels Atlanta, a program of Senior Citizen Services. To allocate every dollar possible to direct meal provision, organizers of the event require every expense associated with the dinner, reception and pre-event festivities be donated or underwritten by sponsorships or auction proceeds. Since the first “A Meal to Remember” in 1988, more than $4 million has been raised to support Meals On Wheels Atlanta.
