CHAUHAN ALE & MASALA HOUSE TO HOST INAUGURAL BENEFIT FOR FOOD FOR THE HUNGRY
Chef Maneet Chauhan has partnered with local humanitarian Daniel C. White to raise funds for the House of Palms project in Madhya Pradesh, India
NASHVILLE, TN (August 8, 2016) – On Monday, August 22, Chauhan Ale & Masala House will host a three-course dinner with beverage pairings to benefit the House of Palms project through Food for the Hungry, an organization dedicated to ending all forms of human poverty through hands-on projects in communities all over the world.
The event is a result of a partnership formed by executive chef Maneet Chauhan and local humanitarian and commercial photographer, Daniel C. White. The two met at Nashville Business Journal’s “40 Under 40” event, a celebration of the publication’s list that recognizes members of the Nashville community, on which both Chauhan and White were included.
“I have been following Daniel on social media for a while, and was inspired by his work in my home country. I love seeing his work in India, seeing the country through his lens,” says Chauhan. “When I was able to finally meet him in person, I immediately knew I wanted to get involved.”
Food for the Hungry is currently providing support to a home in Madhya Pradesh, India, that offers refuge to young girls that have fallen victim to a 500-year cycle of prostitution as a way of life in the region. The House of Palms has been very successful, and is now raising funds to open a second location that would house 100 more girls.
“I’m a huge fan of Maneet not only as an entrepreneur and incredible chef, but now as a friend who has a heart to use her talents and influence to help those in need,” says White. “It is truly surreal to work with Maneet and my favorite restaurant Chauhan Ale & Masala House in this capacity.”
Chauhan and White plan to make the benefit an annual event.
In addition to a portion of the ticket sales being donated to the project, local artist Lindsey Isbell will have paintings inspired by White’s photography up for auction to raise further funds.
Guests will enjoy a cocktail reception starting at 6 p.m., followed by a seated dinner at 7 p.m. The three-course dinner will be planned and prepared by chef Chauhan and her team, with beverage pairings by bar manager Jen Fuller. Tickets are $100 (plus tax and gratuity) and can be purchased at chauhannashville.eventbrite.com.
Creative Artist Agency and Ascend Federal Credit Union are helping to sponsor the event.
