Profits from Haitian Wine Dinner on Feb. 24 Donated to The Lambi Fund of Haiti
On Tuesday, Jan. 12, an earthquake with the catastrophic magnitude of 7.0 Mw hit the island of Haiti. With over three million people affected by the devastating quake, both individuals and groups across the globe are searching for ways to assist the Haitian people. Here in Louisville, chef Anthony Lamas of Seviche is among the many stepping up to help, giving the majority of profits made from his upcoming wine dinner to the Lambi Fund of Haiti – a non-profit organization dedicated to assist the popular, democratic movement occurring in Haiti. The Haitian-themed wine dinner, which is part of Seviche’s popular “Gusto Latino” series, will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 24. Featuring various dishes made following Haitian culinary traditions, each course will be paired with wines from Chile, Oregon, Italy and France. David DuBou of Vintner Select will also be in attendance, explaining to guests why each wine was selected and answering any additional wine questions they may have. The evening will begin at 7 p.m. with a reception, followed by dinner at 7:30 p.m. The cost is $85 per person, plus tax and gratuity. Space is limited.
