Dining for a Difference

Event Date: 
Thursday, October 4, 2018 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Cooper River Room

This East Cooper Region inspired theme invites guests to gather and enjoy signature small plates from local chefs, along with wine pairings, an open bar and the opportunity to win a culinary experience. 

Guests will travel through the East Cooper Meals on Wheels delivery area while sampling Lowcountry inspired dishes and learning more about the homebound neighbors they serve.

This fundraising event is focused on creating an enjoyable evening for guests, while generating resources to ensure that homebound neighbors, regardless of age or income, have access to healthy meals.

East Cooper Meals on Wheels has fully adopted the idea that food is medicine. The inaugural event in 2016 helped kick off a three year $500,000 campaign to ensure that they are not only providing meals, social interaction and a safety check to recipients, but also providing them with healthy meals that will assist them after surgery, injury, illness and as they age in place. The first Dining for a Difference raised enough funds to provide more than 15,000 meals to homebound neighbors.
