Those participating include chefs from: Feast, Pastiche Modern Eatery, Kingfisher Bar & Grill, Bob’s Steak and Chop House, HUB Restaurant and Ice Creamery, and The Abbey.
“This is the inaugural year for Cookies & Cabernet and we are very excited by the community’s response for it, especially the talented chefs who have teamed up with us to make this possible and our wonderful host, Medicine Man Gallery,” explains Debbie Rich, CEO of the Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona. “Cookies & Cabernet will also help kick off the Girl Scout cookie season in style and of course allow our supporters to have fun, and enjoy great desserts as well.”
Medicine Man Gallery will be donating 20% of the proceeds from art sold that night to the Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona. Proceeds will help support Girl Scout programs for the 14,000 girls served in the Council’s jurisdiction.
