RRH Foundation organizes to-go gourmet baskets for fundraiser

RRH Foundation organizes to-go gourmet baskets for fundraiserKimberly Parent of RDK Catering refines the menu for the upcoming “Evening Under the Southwestern Stars” fundraiser. Like most signature events in 2020, the annual fund-raiser for the Ridgecrest Regional Hospital Foundation has adapted to meet guidelines for safety and social distancing. “This year’s event will be a unique culinary road trip to the great American Southwest — all in the comfort of your own home!” said RRH Foundation Director Kim Metcalf. Each year Metcalf organizes a black-tie affair to raise money for the foundation. “Because we are unable to meet in person, we are calling this event a ‘Gala-to-Go.’” The gourmet basket will feature an appetizer, main course, dessert, specially paired wine and craft cocktail, as well as linen, glasses and a centerpiece to help set the mood. To participate in this virtual event, call Metcalf at 760-499-3955. Proceeds will benefit the RRH Cancer Center. — Courtesy photo
