Delicious home-cooked food, fine entertainment, and environmental friendliness: you can have it all in a single evening at The Dinner Party this Thursday. Charlotte Ong ’14, co-VP for Programming, gives you the scoop.
VHP’s very first on-campus event of the year will be taking place on Thursday, 23rd Feb, 6pm – 8pm at the Villard Room. A collaboration between VHP, Vassar Greens and Slow Food Vassar, The Dinner Party is a classy affair held in support of our Reforestation Initiative! There will be five a cappella groups and a jazz combo performing, and food will be provided by some generous and lovely House Fellows and Slow Food. Plus, the event will be zero-waste, with the Vassar Greens’ help.
A sneak preview of Thursday’s menu: Korean Pulled Pork, Chicken Briyani, Grilled Chicken Cutlets and Fried Plantains. YUM.
I’m really excited about this event because we’re working with new partner organizations, drawing on each group’s strengths, making for some serious synergy! Organizing this event has been fraught with difficulties and obstacles, but despite all these setbacks and changes in plans I am confident that we can pull off yet another beautiful evening for everyone to enjoy, because that is exactly what VHP does best!
The Programming Team and Reforestation Initiative have been working hard to prepare for this event, so remember to stop by the College Center to pick up a ticket! You don’t want to miss out on this, trust me. Spread the word, bring your friends and join us for a lovely evening of wonderful performances and food cooked with love!
