Tickets On Sale for The Dinner Party to Benefit The Seeing Eye

MORRISTOWN, N.J. - The Seeing Eye is pleased to announce that tickets are now on sale for a one-of-a-kind dining experience on May 9, 2017. The second annual Dinner Party will once again bring together chefs from some of New Jersey’s finest restaurants who will prepare a six course meal with wine pairings.

Guests will enjoy the company of Seeing Eye puppies, incredible food, signature cocktails, amazing door prizes and a live auction. The event, which is held in a different location each year, will be hosted at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J. Thanks to a generous donor who has completely underwritten the cost of the event, all tickets sold and funds raised will directly support the organization’s mission to breed, raise and train Seeing Eye® dogs to guide people who are blind and visually impaired. Last year, The Dinner Party raised $145,000 for the Morristown, N.J. based non-profit.

The top New Jersey chefs who will prepare the menu including hors d’oeuvres and dessert are:

  • Chef Brett Carriere of Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster
  • Chef Ariane Duarte of Ariane Kitchen & Bar in Verona
  • Executive Chef Keunsoo Park of Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster
  • Chef Erica Leahy of Jockey Hollow Bar & Kitchen in Morristown
  • Chef Andrea Lekberg of The Artist Baker in Morristown
