Third Annual Interactive Dinner at Osteria - June 8

Join your downtown friends and neighbors for the second annual DCRA Interactive Dinner. Enjoy their experience of watching Chef Ginti prepare Italian cuisine at one of downtown’s finest restaurants. Everyone will have a great time learning the secrets of preparing an exquisite appetizer, entrée, or dessert. Your part in the creation of a five course dinner will be randomly assigned as everyone gets acquainted at the cash bar preceding dinner. This fundraiser is closed to the general public and you must have a reservation as seats are limited.
