The 21st annual OSF HealthCare Foundation “Heart of Gold” dinner will be held Thursday, October 18, at the Terrace Bay Inn.
The event features a seven-course dinner prepared and presented by chefs from across the Upper Peninsula – all members of the Upper Michigan Chapter of the American Culinary Federation. The menu for each year’s dinner remains a surprise and is unveiled at the start of the evening.
“The dinner is a culinary experience unlike any other in our community,” said Jean Arvan, Director of Philanthropy at OSF HealthCare St. Francis Hospital & Medical Group. “Chefs present each course and share with guests how the course was prepared and why it was chosen. The dinner also features a selection of fine wines chosen specifically to complement the courses.”
“The focus is entirely on the dining experience, with excellent food, fine wine and great commaradare,” added Arvan, noting there are no raffles, auctions or prize drawings. “Guests can relax and simply enjoy fine cuisine prepared by the area’s best chefs.”
Proceeds from the dinner benefit OSF St. Francis Hospital & Medical Group and remain in Delta County to support needed new health care services, patients’ comfort and new technology. More than $14 million has been donated to date.
Reservations for the Heart of Gold dinner are required. For more information or to make a reservation, contact the OSF HealthCare Foundation office at 786-5707, ext. 5516.
