2941 Memorial Dinner for the Daughters of Chef Patrick Deiss, Sunday, November 4th, 2012


Recommended Posts

On Sunday, November 4th, 2941 is hosting this dinner to support the two daughters of Patrick Deiss, Brianna and Maya.

Patrick (who I'm very proud to say was a Facebook friend of mine, using the name Deissman) grappled with a painful ailment for quite awhile, but his passing a couple months ago was completely unexpected. Brianna's posts on his Facebook wall are utterly heartbreaking.

The link has all the details, but there will be two events: a Happy Hour with Hors d'Oeuvres from 5:30-7 PM, and a five-course tasting menu with wine pairings beginning at 7 PM. The 5:30 event is $75, and both events combined are $250, all-inclusive.

Celebrity chefs and mixologists participating will include numerous donrockwell.com members:

Gérard Pangaud, Gerard's Place, Marriott

Haidar Karoum, Proof

Scott Drewno, The Source

Adam Bernbach, Proof

Bertrand Chemel, 2941

Will Artley, Pizzeria Orso

Caitlin Dysart, 2941 (Pastry)

Jonathan Schuyler, 2941 (Sommelier)

Anthony Chavez, L'Academie de Cuisine

Note also that during the Happy Hour portion, there will be a silent auction of Pat's personal cookbook collection.

Proceeds from donations, the silent auction, and the events will be given to:

The Patrick W. Deiss Memorial Fund

c/o First Bank

5304 Main Street

Mount Jackson, VA 22842

and will be used to pay for the well-being and education of Brianna and Maya.

This community has a history of rallying around worthy causes. Please remember these events for Luis Morales, Relief in Haiti, Elio Martinez, Hurricane Katrina. These are just four examples - there are plenty more.

Friends, it's time to step up once again, and support the daughters of Patrick Deiss, a gentle soul whose life was tragically cut short.

Please go here and retweet.
