Denim & Diamonds Farm to Table Dinner

On September 21st an amazing group of people gathered at SIW in support of the Cancer Support Community of Delaware. A little bit about the Cancer Support Community is they are a non-profit with the mission to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community. 

Tara Taylor was the mind behind all the beautiful decor while Michele Centrella Harra pulled all the details together in organizing this event. Wild Thyme beautifully crafted flower arrangements to add that special touch. 

Chef Robert Lhulier of Robert Lhulier Cuisine prepared a spectacular menu with fruits and vegetables from SIW. Caffe Gelato was on point with catering and keeping everything moving along perfectly! Of course we were head over heels with the wine that Penn Woods Winery provided and poured through the night!

It was a fantastic event and night and we are beyond honored to have been part! All photos were taken and provided by Kelli Wilke Photography and all the photos from the night can be viewed here.
