Dinner with an author?
Not everyone wants to dance but certainly many would like to dine with a celebrity. Hosted on Thursday by Calmer Choice, eight private homes across Cape Cod will welcome up to eight guests to dine with a local celebrity. For a $125 donation, guests can spend an evening of dinner and conversation with authors such as Lisa Genova or Mick Carlon, or other local luminaries such as Mindy Todd, LGPA Champ Pat Bradley or local philanthropist David Willard. Proceeds will benefit Calmer Choice programs in local schools. For further information or to register for one of the celebrity dinners go to calmerchoice.org/events.
