After Kristin Kelly made Jackson Hole more of her full-time home, she knew what wanted to develop deeper roots here. To her, that meant philanthropy. When she struck up a friendship with Gavin Fine of the Fine Dining Restaurant Group, she knew just the cause: Alex’s Lemonade Stand.
The charity befitting children with cancer combines multiple passions: food, wine, and for giving back. On March 3, Kelly is partnering with Fine Dining to invite people into her slopeside home for a dinner benfiting the charity. James Beard award winning chef Marc Vetri and Fine will prepare the intimate, multi-course dining experience with wine pairings. Tickets are $1,000 per person ($925 tax deductible), and only 20 seats are available. This exclusive Alex’s Table dinner will be the first held outside New York or Los Angeles.
“The cause has always been near and dear to my heart,” she said. “Luckily, I have healthy, happy kids, but we hvae friends whose children have had cancer. Everyone is touched by cancer in some way.”
The cause is also something close to Fine, whose company is donating all the food for the dinner. Stay tuned for more information on a summer dinner, and check here for more details on the dinner next month.
