Our journey will begin with a light cocktail hour and hors d’oeuvres before the seated dinner. Guests will be toured through the world of terpenes and gain a basic understanding of the aroma compounds found in all our food, beverages and aromatic plants. So, come relax and take your senses on an educational joy-ride while indulging in some highbrow gastronomy. The dishes and pairings will be customizable so you can create an experience with your own comfort levels. The ticket price is for food only, while all beverages and “OTHER PAIRINGS” are by suggested donation and included in the experience (ticket purchase may count as donation to Parkinson’s Association of Rockies). A silent auction will be held before dinner to raise extra funds for Parkinson’s research and education. Please see the menu below.
Committed to enhancing lives and connecting communities.
The Parkinson Association of the Rockies supports, strengthens and empowers the Parkinson’s Community in Colorado. We do this through innovating, educating, promoting research, creating awareness, serving as an advocate, and providing support services for the Parkinson’s community.
