What does “Dîner en Vert” mean?
Diner en Vert translates to “Dine in Green.” It is our version of the “Diner en Blanc” concept that originated in France and now takes place all over the world. At that event, everything must be white – from attire, to linens, to tables and chairs! We will be going green! So, do your best to find that perfect outfit in green for your summer garden party.
What will be at the event?
Do I have to buy tickets beforehand?
Yes! This is a limited event so we strongly suggest getting your tickets early.
What is the Premier Raffle?
The Premier Raffle provides one winner with the opportunity to select ANY item from the Silent Auction. Would you like a week at the shore? A new grill? Everything you need for the beach? Gift cards to dine all around Downingtown? These are just a few items that you could select! Tickets are $100 each.
