24th ANNUAL CULINARY CAPER SET FOR MARCH 4TH

Chefs from Montgomery’s finest restaurants will host the 24th Annual Culinary Caper to benefit MACOA and our Meals on Wheels program. This highly anticipated event will be held on Sunday, March 4th at the Alabama Activity Center. The silent auction will open at 11:30 am with a reception to follow at 12:00 pm and lunch will be served at 12:30 pm. We are pleased to honor St. John’s Episcopal Church as the fourth recipient of the Rick Heinzman Memorial Meals on Wheels Award at this year’s event.

Each chef will prepare a signature item and serve their dish as part of a carefully planned menu for guests to enjoy during this seated luncheon affair. You may experience this exciting afternoon by purchasing a ticket at $75 per person. Tables of eight may be purchased for $750 to ensure preferred seating requests with your party. Sponsorship packages are also available from $1,200 to $5,000. In addition to gourmet dishes of the day, a silent auction with a variety of alluring items and, back by popular demand, the “Dine Out On Us” raffle featuring $1,000 worth of popular restaurant gift cards will serve as another special highlight of this charity benefit. Even those who can’t attend the Caper have an exciting opportunity to participate in the raffle by purchasing a mere $5 raffle ticket to support MACOA and our mission to serve seniors.

The goal of the Culinary Caper is to raise $80,000 to support MACOA and our Meals on Wheels program that serves 404 homebound seniors hot nutritious noon meals each weekday. Currently, we have over 250 clients on our waiting list to be added to a delivery route. With activities such as the Culinary Caper, we are working to expand this program and eliminate the number on the waiting list for this much needed service.
