Guests will meet celebrity chef Kevin Belton and enjoy food from local chefs; a sampling of wine, bourbon and beer; and live music for a boot-scootin’ good time under the string lights at the Court of De Luna Event Space on Friday, Oct. 11, from 6 to 9 PM.
This fundraiser is one of several community engagement events planned by WSRE in conjunction with the fall release of Ken Burns’ Country Music documentary on PBS. In keeping with the country theme and in recognition of their community service, Cat Country 98.7 FM’s Dave and Mary Hoxeng and Brent and Angela Lane are honorary event chairs.
With a big personality to match his 6-foot-9-inch frame, Mr. Belton is the star of New Orleans Cooking with Kevin Belton and Kevin Belton’s New Orleans Celebrations airing locally on WSRE and WSRE Create. In 2014, he was recognized as one of the top 20 Louisiana chefs.
Tickets are $50 and available for purchase at wsre.org/wineandfood or by calling Suzie Payne at 850-484-1054. Sponsorships are available, and proceeds benefit the mission of WSRE to positively impact communities through education, entertainment and engagement.
