Chattanooga Appalachian Bistro TerraMae celebrated its first anniversary with an event featuring guest chefs from across the region. The event raised $5,190 for Siskin Children’s Institute.
“We had a wonderful time celebrating our anniversary with our beautiful community and are so happy to have partnered with such an awesome non-profit for such a wonderful evening,” said TerraMae Event Coordinator Brie Welch. “It was important to work with Siskin because of how much good Siskin does for the children and families in our community. Not only do they offer school and rehabilitation for mental and physical ailments, they also teach the families of the children how to work with them at home on improvements.”
Siskin gained $50 of each $115 ticket to the event and proceeds from the silent auction.
Five chefs from North Carolina, Virginia, and Tennessee joined TerraMae’s Executive Chef Shelley Cooper in preparing dishes. They included Bruce Lafone and John Campbell of Asheville, N.C. and Kyle Woodruff and Emily Clary Woodruff of Williamsburg, Va. Rounding out the five chefs was Chattanooga’s own Chef Rebecca Barron of St. John’s Restaurant.
Each chef had a table with food and drinks for guests to sample at the restaurant on East 10th Street inside the historic StoneFort Inn.
Chattanooga string band Old Time Travelers provided entertainment.
“Our guests seemed to really enjoy the laid back, social aspect of our dinner party and exclaimed that they couldn’t wait until next year’s event, which we fully plan on doing,” Ms. Welch said.
