Jimmy V Celebrity Golf Classic Fundraiser Dinner

Posted on 09/08/2013

Join us at Gravy as we team up with Jimmy V Celebrity Golf  Classic for a special evening to raise money for cancer research.

Thursday, October 3 at 6 p.m.

Executive chef Brent Hopkins has created a special five-course menu that includes wine pairings. Cost is $100 a person, excluding tax and tip. $50 of each meal will go directly to the V Foundation for Cancer Research.

The V Foundation was formed in 1993 by legendary N.C. State University basketball coach Jim Valvano. In the past 20 years, the Foundation has awarded more than $100 million to 100 facilities nationwide and proudly awards 100 percent of direct donations and net event proceeds to cancer research.

Gravy is honored to be part of such a cause!
