Walk the grounds of the Governor’s residence, sample delicious bites, enjoy live entertainment, an auction and an open bar.
The Governor of the British Virgin Islands is traditionally the Patron of VISAR, and he and his wife open up their home to host this yearly fundraiser. The event takes place under the stars with 10-12 local restaurants that prepare delicious bite site portions of their top menu items for the 150 guests to enjoy. The evening also features live music, open bar, dozens of raffles prizes, and a selection of live auction items. The participating restaurants donate their chef’s time as well as all of the food or drinks.
A New Twist This Year…
In addition to the wonderful dishes the local restaurants create for the evening, they will also be producing a “Best in Show” dish that YOU will get to judge! Each restaurant will be paired with a local farm that will donate enough of the same produce for each restaurant to create a dish based on their interpretation of how to best showcase the produce. After speaking with the farms, we’ve decided on arugula and basil due to its great abundance. Then at the event, each guest will get a rating sheet and choose the “best in show” which will be announced at the end of the evening. We can’t wait to see what the Chef’s come up with!
