Looking for a fun social event, and a great cause to get behind? Check out the 7th Annual Sugar & Champagne Affair being held at the Ritz Carlton on January 28th, 2009 from 7:00 – 9:00pm. The event is being hosted by Todd and Ellen Gray of Equinox Restaurant and Salamander Resort: Spa.
Guests and their dogs will be greeted by the world’s finest sparkling wines, champagne and delicious desserts from the area’s top Pastry Chefs. And I’m pleasantly surprised to see a number of local cupcake bakeries on the list of participating restaurants! Included on the list are Hello Cupcake, Buzz Bakery, Locolat, and Suga Chef Desserts. Lebanese Taverna, Brasserie Beck, Art & Soul, and 2941 are also on the list, along with beverages being provided by Moet Hennessey, Fabbioli Cellars, Country Vintner, Williams Harris Imports, and Mt. Gay Rum, to name a few. Check out the whole list of Participating Restaurants and Beverage Companies by clicking here.
Tickets are $85 per person, with a special VIP ticket for $125. The VIP reception will begin promptly at 6:30 p.m. and feature three 30 minute chef demonstrations. This annual event is in honor of the Washington Humane Society Officers who work 24-hours a day, saving the homeless, lost, neglected and abused animals and our Humane Education program that teaches elementary school children compassion and respect for animals.
There will also be a Book Signing by Harold J. Creel Jr., Author of Do Old Dogs Dream?
