Join Promise of Peace for this unique evening as we come together to enjoy an exquisite meal set in the middle of the okra field on the Reeves Family Farm

Chefs Anastacia Quinones, Alex Astranti, Casey Nicole, Daniel Pittman, and Adam West will deliver the flavors of the farm as we raise funds to support the Promise of Peace Gardens and Reeves Family Farm.

There will be a bus available that will transport attendees from Dallas to the farm and back for an extra fee of 20 dollars. 

Location to catch the bus is the White Rock Ale House, 7331 Gaston 

Cocktails begin at 5:00 pm with music by Grammy-nominated Russ Hewitt. Dinner at 6:00 pm.

We look forward to sharing this experience worthy of the POP 10th anniversary, and showcasing the love and support of so many community builders, chefs, farmers and friends!
