An Evening on the Riviera

Frederick, Maryland – The planning committee of the 14th annual An Evening on the Riviera, the area’s premier charity food and wine extravaganza, is pleased to announce that this year’s event was a huge success. Over 400 guests attended the event which showcases the region’s finest restaurants, caterers, wine cellars, and entertainment.

“We extend our sincerest thanks to everyone who has helped make this event so spectacular. We couldn’t do it without the enthusiasm and support of the event sponsors, restaurants, caterers, wineries, microbreweries, table top designers, auction donors, and of course, the guests,” says event chairperson Heidi Horine.

This year’s Best Savory Dish first and second place winners were The Comus Inn and Canapes, respectively. The Comus Inn was also the 2009 Best Savory winner. The first place winner of the Delectable Dessert award was The Perfect Truffle, and the second place award was given to Hollow Creek Golf Club. First place for Best Creative Display was awarded to Gourmet With Paula Catering, while second place was awarded to Home at Braddock Inn.

To the 9s received the Tabletop Design award for their elegant double tiered candle lit floral display set in a Roman-style urn accented with fresh grapes. Owner, Matt Aspey, has selected Hospice of Frederick County as the beneficiary of the $500 award.

The An Evening on the Riviera committee would also like to congratulate the lucky VOLT raffle winners, Karen Beck and Linda Biagioni. Each will receive a two-hour cooking lesson for six people with Chef Bryan Voltaggio followed by lunch in the Chef’s Dining Room at VOLT.

The organizing committee for An Evening on the Riviera is proud that, once again, 100% of the proceeds raised will be donated to Frederick County non-profit organizations. This year’s beneficiaries are The Boys and Girls Club of Frederick County and The Women’s Giving Circle of Frederick County.

Don’t miss out on next year’s fun! Mark your calendars now for the 15th annual An Evening on the Riviera which will be held on Friday, October 7, 2011.
