MADISON (WKOW) -- Clean Wisconsin, the state’s oldest environmental organization, will host its third annual gala fundraiser, Epicurean Evening Madison.
On Monday, Mariah Haberman and Chef David Heide stopped by Wake Up Wisconsin to talk about the event.
Held at the Monona Terrace overlooking Lake Monona, Epicurean Evening Madison will feature a multi-course dinner prepared by four critically-acclaimed Madison-area chefs. The event will include a cocktail hour with drinks crafted by local mixologists, a wine pull, a live and silent auction, and a giving tree. Proceeds from the event support Clean Wisconsin’s work preserving and protecting the state’s clean water, air and natural heritage. Clean Wisconsin is proud to partner with Lexus of Madison as the sponsor for this year’s event
“We are extremely excited to once again host this excellent event,” says Mark Redsten, President and CEO of Clean Wisconsin. “By featuring great food prepared by master chefs to bring awareness to Clean Wisconsin’s work, we hope to send a powerful statement: that the food we eat to live healthy and happy lives is dependent upon clean water, air, and land.
Headlining the event are Chefs Giovanni Novella of Cento, Nick Johnson of Robinia Courtyard, Francesco Mangano of Osteria Papavero, and Dave Heide of Liliana’s as well as Charlie’s on Main in Fitchburg. Inspired to pursue their culinary craft with environmental sustainability in mind, the chefs see Epicurean Evening Madison as an opportunity to showcase their talent, in addition to making a collective statement for sustainable agriculture and the local food movement.
