We are pleased to announce that the Kinship Partners Crosby office will be hosting its 4th Annual Taste of the Cuyuna Lakes on Saturday, May 6, 2017, at Ruttger’s Bay Lake Lodge to recognize and celebrate the fine restaurants and chefs from the Cuyuna Lakes area.

The premier chefs will provide an evening of gourmet tastes and the samples of wine and beer contribute to make this a very special occasion.  Along with a silent auction, it is an “eat a little, drink a little, bid a little…” evening of merriment for everyone!  All proceeds benefit the Crosby area Kinship Partners youth mentoring program.

While you are enjoying the wine and beer tasting time (5:00 pm-6:30 pm) professional chef/judges will be sampling the evening’s dishes to determine the award winners from the following categories: st6:30arter (appetizer, soup, or salad), entrée, and dessert.

Then at 6:30 pm, as our guest, you will enter the dining room and “Taste” the samples provided by area chefs and caterers. In addition, you will vote for your favorite which will determine the People’s Choice Award.

***A limited number of tickets will be sold and must be purchased in advance.***
