In what has become an annual tradition, on Sun, September 14th from 4-8pm under the trees of Glen Helen local chefs join together to create a culinary adventure to benefit The Glen Helen Raptor Center. These chefs from the area’s top restaurants will provide a bountiful six course feast sourced from local area growers.
Prior to dinner, in true raptor fashion, devour mouth watering charcuterie from “Smoking Goose” and sip a signature cocktail; Raptor’s Delight, while you tour our Raptor Center. Then, move on to our fine dining tent, refill your beverage and bid on our themed “Birds of Prey Silent Auction”. Further support our programs by choosing to “Adopt a Raptor”.
