Celebrity Cruises Crème de la Femme Dinner, presented by Whole Foods Market, is an exclusive culinary celebration of the finest female talent, honoring the farm-to-fork spirit found throughout the southern region and raising charitable funds for The Family Place.
The evening will begin with Infiniti’s outdoor cocktail reception on the stately columned porch of Arlington Hall, overlooking the expansive green lawns of Lee Park. Guests will be greeted with Roca Patrón crafted cocktails, courtesy of Celebrity Cruises, while Whole Foods Market will provide a tasteful array of cheeses, selected by a certified cheesemonger.
Following drinks and hors d’oeuvres, guests will be ushered inside of Arlington Hall for a six-course seated dinner, with each dish prepared by a different culinary expert, and paired with exclusive wines provided by Southern Glazers Wine & Spirits. Diners will also be treated to a live concert by the Dallas String Quartet.
