Want to enjoy a fun event with a private chef? This year, we welcome back Chef Kurt von Kahle; to cook delicious food on site, and offer a chance to win dinner for 6 prepared at your home! Chef Kurt is an amazing talent and he will be showing how a single convection oven and 30″ induction cook top can feed a party of 50! Chef will be recommending which wine works with his creations, and sharing his expertise on how to make these beautiful dishes as well as how to maximize the tools you have to make entertaining easier! This will be another educational, exciting and delicious way to welcome in the start of the spring season. The date is April 7th from 6-9pm at our showroom in Sherborn. Here is what you will be helping us achieve:
This year we will be helping the volunteers that help those who are less fortunate. My relationship with A Place To Turn food pantry started when my son was a young Scout. Because I own a pick-up, I usually made the transfer of the Boy Scouts food drive from Sherborn to Natick. Joanne Barry, the director is always there to greet us with some of their volunteers. On My first visit, Joanne made time to give me, and 2 of my young children a private tour of the pantry and explain their mission. I learned about the difference in this regional treasure, and how they help referred clients, most of who are going through a temporary challenge and need help to feed their family.
We have already helped the pantry with some renovation on the second floor, and Joanne tells me that the biggest impact has been to the volunteers who spend full days there. It makes their job easier, and allows them to help those in need with a more respectful “Place to Turn”. This winter, Joanne called and needed help with the powder room. Of course anyone who needs to use the space can, however; the volunteers are typically the ones using the facility, and it is in desperate need of repair. Our belief is that any funds the pantry has can be better used to keep this vital part of the community’s fabric on good ground, so we are hoping to help raise enough funds to make this a 100% community funded project.
The Wiese Company will donate more than $10,000 in labor and materials. We have had several vendors offer free or much discounted services (our electrician-Steve Pacewicz, demolition man-Jeff McNulty and painter-Kevin Carlson are working for free). Unfortunately, the space has Asbestos that requires abatement and the plumbing required is commercial in nature and will be very expensive, making the project total approximately $5,000 more than a typical residential project of this size. Any and all donations made will go directly to A Place To Turn- and if we raise more than the goal of $8,500- they can use this toward their next capitol project!
The price to attend the event is $50, and all the costs of the event will be covered by The Wiese Company. 100% of your ticket or other donations will go to A Place To Turn. I hope to see you, but if your calendar is full, we can still use a hand. Please follow this link and help us create a safer and more enjoyable environment for the volunteers at A Place To Turn.
