An Exclusive Dinner with AQ and Sprouts featuring Wine Supplied by Southern Wine.

The Executive Chef and Owner of AQ welcomes you into his restaurant for an evening of abundance and giving. Join us in a toast to Sprouts’ Chef-in-Training program as AQ treats us to a stunning 4-course dinner artfully paired with wines and spirits. Join Chef Mark before dinner for a private cocktail hour with our Chef-in-Training interns, and put in a bid at our Silent Auction for gifts donated by Alice Waters, local spas, and celebrity chefs. Sit back, relax, and let yourself be inspired by a breathtaking meal and a noble cause. Your entire evening will be donated to a young adult in need of a new start.
