DonRocks Posted October 23, 2012 Share Posted October 23, 2012 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.
