The setting could not have been more inviting — an incredible early fall sunset at H. G. Haskell’s farm against the backdrop of an impressive old red barn, built in the 1600’s, where inside guests took their seats for an alfresco farm to table dinner.

The Cancer Support Community of Delaware‘s Denim & Diamonds fundraiser on September 21st began with cocktails, wine and hors d’oeuvres outside, where guests were able to see first-hand the culinary expertise that chef Robert Lhulier and his team applied to the farm fresh menu, which included seasonal picks from SIW Vegetables/Hill Girt Farm.

When the party moved inside the barn, guests were treated to a visual feast, with handsomely appointed dinner tables, fall harvest decor, cheery floral centerpieces and a special chandelier that surely wasn’t easy to hang in its place! Event co-chairs Michele Harra, Gina Pike and Meg Erskine planned many of the evening’s details and helped design a crowd-pleasing dinner menu, which included grilled flank steak and potatoes accompanied by a nectarine and roasted beet salad and a yummy heirloom tomatoes and ricotta mix.

The late summer feast will help benefit CSCDE participants, caregivers, and family members.  All of CSCDE’s programs are at no cost to the participants, caregivers, and family members and are led by licensed mental health professionals.
