Come support one of the Junior League of Atlanta’s biggest fundraisers!
Save the date, mark your calendars, and répondez s’il vous plait, ladies and gentlemen. It’s almost time to experience the most deliciously exciting event fundraiser of the year – the Junior League of Atlanta, Inc. (JLA) Tour of Kitchens. JLA is pleased to announce the 17th Annual Tour of Kitchens, a two-day self-guided tour featuring a view into 14 of Atlanta’s finest residential kitchens created by the city’s most celebrated designers. Tour of Kitchens 2014 will be held Saturday, March 29, 2014 from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. and Sunday, March 30, 2014 from 11:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Kitchens on the Tour will include special appearances and demonstrations by Atlanta’s most legendary restaurant chefs and dignitaries. Tickets are available now at www.tourofkitchens.org.
Designed as a self-guided tour, Tour of Kitchens provides attendees exclusive access to renowned kitchens in some of Atlanta’s most exclusive neighborhoods, including Buckhead, Brookhaven, Ansley Park, Midtown, Sandy Springs and Dunwoody. Tour of Kitchens will showcase many “firsts” this year, including its first official child-friendly chef – Chef Ed Harris, Season 4 Winner of The Food Network’s “Chopped,” as a commitment to reducing childhood obesity. Another first is the kosher kitchen designed by Lefko Design + Build.
Days before the event on Thursday, March 20, 2014, hundreds of patrons will attend the 17th Annual Toast of the Tour event celebrating design inspiration, culinary fun and community service. Toast of the Tour will take place at the PDI Kitchen, Bath & Lighting Showroom in Midtown West and will incorporate culinary demonstrations, cocktails and feature a spectacular silent auction. Bidders can expect phenomenal items, such as VIP Suites at the Mandarin Oriental, Loews and Four Seasons, Spa gift certificates, designer accessories, sports memorabilia from Atlanta’s home teams and culinary experiences in your home with Atlanta’s premier and world renowned chefs.
