Due to the uncertainty of health and safety guidelines, we have decided to continue to host our 10th Annual “An Unlikely Pairing – Adventures in Food Trucks and Fine Wine – in your home!” Our partner food trucks are once again poised to create a delectable multi-course meal and we’re going to deliver it directly to you, along with the wine, lounge drinks,and so much more- right to your door! Like last year, you get to pick your menu—which will have its own specifically curated wine array for your palate! Our “Gala in a Box” will also include a private YouTube link to a youth speaker that you and your guests can enjoy viewing at any point during the evening. Depending upon your comfort level, you can enjoy as an intimate dinner for two or invite your family and friends to enjoy a dinner party in your home with up to 10 of you enjoying your own private gala! In its 10 years, An Unlikely Pairing has raised over $800,000, which has helped CLK not only deliver inner city programming to underprivileged kids physically, it’s helped ensure that they maintain the ability to pivot and grow with these ever changing times so that no matter what—no kid is left behind. This impact would not be possible without the support of our generous sponsors and guests.
