A pandemic can’t stop this enthusiastic trio from continuing the Parties for the Park tradition of treating us to a fine Italian meal from Gocciolina to benefit the park! This year Chef Aaron Benjamin will prepare one of his signature pasta dishes (meat or vegetarian) ready for us to pop into our own ovens.  Each ticket provides a dish that will feed 2-3 people and includes a demi loaf of bread with a sampling of fine olive oil, a bottle of red wine selected by Aaron, and something sweet for a finishing touch.  This delicious meal is designed to be easily frozen for those who would like to bank a future dinner date.  (Host Alice suggests purchasing more than one meal kit!)

Hosts Vera Whisenton and Alice Sharpe will be in the restaurant’s parking lot to greet folks, hand out bags and offer distant but enthusiastic thank yous!

The ticket price includes a tip for Aaron’s staff as we want to support Gocciolina as well as the park during this awful year.
