St. Vincent’s HealthCare is preparing for its second annual Corks & Forks masquerade charity benefit.
Sponsored by the St. Vincent’s Foundation, Corks & Forks will be Nov. 11 from 7-10 p.m. at The Club Continental in Orange Park.
Attendees will dine on signature dishes from renowned First Coast chefs, including Chef Scotty Schwartz from 29 South, Chef Wesley Nogueira from bb’s restaurant, Chef Sheldon Harris from The Club Continental, and Pastry Chef Mallorie Finnell from Biscottis and bb’s restaurant. The dishes will be paired with wines from an assortment of domestic and international vineyards selected by Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits. Guests can also purchase one-of-a-kind masks created by artists from The Art Guild of Orange Park to wear at the masquerade and keep after the event.
“We are thrilled to continue this new tradition in Clay County and we are thankful to these fine local chefs for supporting our mission by once again volunteering their time. We know attendees will enjoy the fantastic food and the festive atmosphere,” said Jane R. Lanier, president of the St. Vincent’s Foundation.
All net proceeds from the event will benefit St. Vincent’s Clay County, as well as numerous outreach programs that benefit Clay County residents, including the Mobile Health Outreach Ministry and Momentum, a free after-school program designed to help combat childhood obesity/
Last year, the event raised approximately $200,000 which helped support The J. Wayne and Delores Barr Weaver Women and Infants Pavilion. To become a sponsor or purchase tickets, go to corksandforksclay.com.
