On Saturday 20th May, Hospice supporters and wine enthusiasts, Jo and Mike Evans, held a DREAM dinner at their home on the North Wall in Chichester. A lot of time and preparation went into creating an incredible five course meal for guests to enjoy, and it certainly paid off!
The thirty guests began their evening of fine dining with a selection of delicious homemade canapes and a glass of fizz, whilst chatting amongst themselves and getting to know one another, and their wines!
After this relaxing start, the diners then proceeded to enjoy a further four gourmet courses, each lovingly crafted by Jo and Mike themselves.
All courses were also accompanied by two tasting wines for the guest to contrast and compare. Each diner was provided with a quiz sheet to complete throughout the evening, noting details and answering questions about the wines. The light-hearted quiz challenged the guests and created a fun topic for conversation!
To end the evening, the guests then relaxed with a coffee as Mike Evans gave them the answers to the quiz, and even provided a small prize for the person with the most points – the ultimate wine connoisseur of the evening!
The DREAM Dinner of gastronomic delights was thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended, and was a huge success, raising over £1,000 for our DREAMBUILDING! Thank you very much to the wonderful hosts, Jo and Mike Evans, to Tesco and Sainsbury’s who both provided a selection of the wines, and to all who attended, for a fantastic evening.
