Huntsville, ALDinner By Design announced today that it will host its first fundraiser for Junior Achievement of North Alabama on Tuesday, July 16, 2013 from 5:30pm to 8:00pm. The event will be held at their retail location: 2750 Carl T. Jones Drive. The fundraiser includes wine tastings from Chalice Wines, light appetizers, and samples from the evening’s menu. Guests will assemble two restaurant quality, take and bake entrees.

 “As a local small-business owner, I live the entrepreneurial dream every day.” says Jennifer Sherman, owner of Dinner By Design. “So I am honored and thrilled that Dinner By Design is partnering with Junior Achievement to raise funds for programs for local school-aged children that empower and equip the next generation of dreamers and entrepreneurs.”

Proceeds from the event will be used for Junior Achievement programs in Madison County. Tickets are $35 in advance, $40 at the door and include wine, light appetizers, and creating two 3-serving dinner entrees. Selections include: Caribbean Chicken Skewers, Grilled Chicken with Mango Salsa (GF), South of the Border Pork Tenderloin (GF), and Zesty Fish Tacos. Two of the dinner entrees are Gluten Free (GF).

“Dinner By Design is like having your very own head chef to design your menus, a prep cook to do all the prep work for each meal, and a maid to clean it all up.” explains Mary A Ramsey, Special Events Manager for Junior Achievement of North Alabama. “JA staff went to DBD a few weeks ago and made three healthy, delicious meals in fifteen minutes. Zero minutes for meal prep and zero minutes for clean up.”
