A Taste for Art features local artists showcasing original pieces in a range of medias; tantalizing culinary stations hosted by aspiring hospitality students; open bar with a variety of wines and custom cocktails; butler passed hors d'oeurves; and respected corporate, civic and community leaders as it’s honored guests. Held at the renowned Greenville County Club, the evening’s spectacular backdrop includes the garden terrace views and sunsets recognized as the best of Northern Wilmington.

We welcome you to make a difference in the lives of children and families on the path to self-sufficient, flourishing futures by joining us for this unique creative art and culinary experience because when our children succeed, our whole community benefits.

THE CELEBRATION
A Taste for Art begins with a VIP Champagne Reception at 6:00pm, one hour earlier than our Main Event. The VIP Champagne Reception, limited to only 100 guests, features complimentary champagne, a selectively chosen of butler passed hors d'oeuvre, and early access to the artwork with exclusive opportunities to speak one on one with our featured artists.

This year’s Main Event will begin promptly at 7:00pm. 

THE FOOD
One of the most memorable aspects of the evening is the entrée and dessert stations hosted by Delaware’s up and coming culinary minds. Striving to be tomorrow’s top chefs, students from four local high school hospitality programs were given budgets and creative freedom to bring our guests a tantalizing variety of gastronomic delights. This year's schools include:

Delcastle Technical High School
Hodgson Vo-Tech High School 
Howard High School of Technology
St. Georges Technical High School
William Penn High School (Delaware)

THE ART
Local artists will have their beautiful work on display throughout the evening. The works range from paintings to photography to mixed media and are all unique and original pieces. All displayed pieces are available for sale with each artist generously donating 20% of their sales during the event directly to Children & Families First.
