Tickets are only available through Monday, Sept. 15th. and can be purchased this week at the Farm Connect delivery sites or through Brown Paper Tickets. Tickets are only $50 per person and the money raised will be going to a GREAT cause.

Here's the scoop:

Red Cross/E.B. Hamilton Hall Building

The entire meal will be prepared with locally produced foods (think 100 mile radius, most less!), with appetizers of:

Vegetable skewers
Duxelle stuffed mushroom caps
Devilled eggs with smoked salmon
Crostini with fresh pesto
Cracker bread with chevre (DCF!) and fig
Fruit waldorf
And a salad full of greens and wild eats, fresh tomato & raw aged feta (DCF), with a berry vinaigrette!

The main entree's will be pasture-raised smoked chicken from Dee Creek Farm, a vegetarian (with vegan options) dish of Ratatouille, or individually wrapped Tamales!

Dessert will include wine-poached pears with creamy filling, topped with local berries!

There will be a cash bar with local wines, a coffee bar with free trade coffee's, and a silent auction full of wonderful things like:

2008 Tax filing
Computer consulting
Massages & therapy
1 year of organic milk
Hand-blown glass vases
Painting & afghan
Gift certificate to tire company
Tickets to SalmonPeople
Dessert basket
Basket of heirloom apples

A basket from Dee Creek Farm, filled with *surprise*
A bottle of 1999 Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon from Sandhill Winery
...And much more!

Summer @ Dee Creek Farm has been volunteering her time to gather foodstuffs for the event, as well as auction items. She is planning to create a photo presentation of the local farmers involved (so you can see where your dinner has come from!). Many of the farmers' foods that you'll be eating at the dinner are farms where you can purchase from through the Farm Connect Deliveries!

There will be a local band to keep us entertained, as well as lots of great company to mingle with. The Red Cross building where it will be hosted (moments away from Fort Vancouver Library) is a lovely venue, swanky and comfortable.

Tickets are on sale through September 15th online at:, or you can purchase them at our Thursday Locavore deliveries in Salmon Creek or uptown Vancouver.
Tickets are $50/person. Well worth the value of quality food that is all local and organic in method, great entertainment, and fabulous company.
