Westport’s River House Tavern will present a series of charity-themed dinners hosted by a selection of notable individuals from southwestern Connecticut in the first “Cook for a Cause” campaign.
Area leaders in education, government, entertainment, not-for-profit and business will work with owner and chef Stephen Alward to create their own signature “Special of the Week” dish that will be featured on the nightly menu, according to an announcement.
The guest chefs will also personally host a reservation-only, prix fixe cocktail reception and dinner with proceeds going to their charity of choice.
Susie Basler, Project Return executive director, will kick off Cook for a Cause with a dinner Thursday, Feb. 9 at 6:30 p.m. The event will support Project Return, a therapeutic group home residence for adolescent girls in crisis.
