High Hopes Supper Club
As with many non-profit organizations, the COVID-19 pandemic has presented a fundraising challenge, and High Hopes has been tasked with thinking out-of-the-box to keep donations coming in. We came up with an idea that not only supports High Hopes, but also local restaurants and caterers who have been adversely affected by the pandemic – High Hopes Supper Club.
Supper Club is a bi-weekly opportunity to indulge in custom meals from renowned local chefs, packaged and available for curbside pick-up at the High Hopes campus to be enjoyed in your own home, all while supporting their businesses as well as the High Hopes community. The ongoing event is presented by FirstBank (formerly Franklin Synergy Bank).
Each chef will have the creative freedom to add their individual flair for a truly unique dining experience which will feature a salad or appetizer, a main dish and two side items with two choices available. Dessert and other ala carte items will vary for an additional charge. Menus will be emailed to all interested Supper Club participants one week in advance (and published here) and orders will be accepted while supplies last.
A limited number of meals are available for one, two or four (or any configuration of those you need) at $25 per person with $15 to the restaurant and $10 to High Hopes.
Meals will be available for pick up at High Hopes (301 High Hopes Court) from 3:30 – 5:30 p.m.
We are thrilled at the potential of this endeavor, not only to help our organization, but the opportunity to support local businesses, making this a true community initiative.
Make your reservation today for our next supper club on Monday, May 24th. Deadline is on or before
Wednesday, May 19th.
Our partner for the May 24th Supper Club is Miss Daisy King and Tim Ness
Tim Ness has spent the bulk of his life in the kitchen, although for more than 15 years he has provided the popular destination for the beloved Southern meat and three in Franklin with his Cool Cafe.
Tennessee's "First Lady of Southern Cooking", Daisy King was the co-founder and chef of the renowned Miss Daisy's Tearoom and is now the proprietor and executive chef of Miss Daisy's Kitchen in Franklin.
These two culinary geniuses found themselves situated right next door to each other and while for many that might provide a challenge, for this duo it spawned a close friendship - one that has partnered together on numerous initiatives and occasions, just like High Hopes Supper Club.
