The annual event benefits the St. Theresa Food Pantry and showcases some of the area’s best chefs, a news release said.

Tickets are $25 per person and are available at Gonzales City Hall, Ascension Chamber of Commerce office on La. 30 in Gonzales and at the door the night of the event. Tickets also are available through members of the club.

Attendees are asked to bring a canned good, which will be donated to the food panty. For every canned good donated, Blue Runner Foods will donate two cans of food, the release said.
