Come out for the Samoa Soiree on Saturday, Feb. 8., and support the Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast chapter.
This year’s fundraiser will take place from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Half Moon Cruise & Celebration Terminal in downtown Norfolk.
It’s a fun, adult-oriented evening where Hampton Roads chefs create appetizers and desserts using Girl Scout cookies as ingredients. There’ll be beer and wine, other hors d’oeuvres, music by the Jim Newsom Band and a silent auction.
The chef lineup features Eric Doarnberger of the Atlantic Shores senior living community, Christina Haver of 80/20 Burger Bar, Paul Holbrook of Bravo Cucina Italiana, Jeff Brown of Cotton Southern Bistro, Scott Simpson of The Founders Inn/Swan Terrace, Chris Clawson of Freemason Abbey Restaurant and Tavern, Carol Robbs of Gatling Pointe Yacht Club, Mark Conway of Kitchen Ink & The IceBreaker Chef, Stephan Luna of Hogarth’s Bar and Bistro, Kisha Frazier of Hummingbird Macaroons, Nicolas Hagen of Karnage Asada Food Truck, and Gerrell Cox of Small’s Smokehouse and Oyster Bar.
I'll be among the judges handing out best-of awards. There'll be an audience favorite as well.
The terminal is located at Waterside Drive and Boush Street. Valet parking will be available or you can park at one of the city garages directly across from the site.
Tickets are $60, available by calling 757-548-9438 or online at www.gsccc.org.
