So when I found out that Chef Rogalski of Rouge Restaurant was crafting a special evening to raise awareness for the Hotchkiss Brain Institute, which is dedicated to neurological and mental health, I found it inspiring that Chef Rogalski has found a way to put forth his devotion for food towards such a righteous cause. I was more than willing to assist in his endeavour and hopefully everyone would too. One might not cook or run, but I believe attending this event would be a great first step to contribute to a notable cause and raise awareness for brain related illnesses and injuries.
Please see below for more information on how you can do your part in this cause:
ROUGE RESTAURANT HOSTS INAUGURAL ROUGE & WHITE GARDEN PARTY TO HELP RAISE AWARENESS FOR HOTCHKISS BRAIN INSTITUTE
What: Rouge Restaurant is celebrating summer and the Stampede’s centennial year by hosting the first annual Rouge and White Garden Party. Join award-winning Chef Paul Rogalski and celebrity guests for a philanthropic, pre-Stampede carnival extravaganza. Guests can expect a chic midway experience with bubbly, wine pairings and a gourmet spin on traditional carnival food. The event is intended to raise awareness for the Hotchkiss Brain Institute, showing support and bringing together people who have been affected by brain related illnesses or injuries.
Why: Neurological related illnesses and injuries hit close to home for Rouge co-owners as both have had family and friends recently affected. The Hotchkiss Brain Institute plays a large role in neurological and mental health research and Rouge would like to highlight their work and efforts. Tickets are $125 each and sold on a first come first serve basis. To purchase tickets to the Rouge and White Garden Party please call 403-531-2767.
