You don’t have to be elected President of the United States to enjoy a meal worthy of a Commander In Chief. Simply make reservations to attend one of two fundraisers benefiting Fremont’s Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center.
In partnership with the Catawba Island Club in Port Clinton, the Hayes Presidential Center hosts former White House Chef John Moeller on Friday, May 1 and Saturday, May 2. Moeller was chef to Presidents George H.W. Bush, William J. Clinton, and George W. Bush. He not only will prepare meals that include food favorites of those presidents, but also will share details of his fascinating career with attendees of both events.
Seating is limited to 125 for the Dine Like a First Lady Luncheon beginning at 11:30 a.m. May 1. The three-course luncheon costs $50 per person. Advance reservations are required.
Only 100 seats are available for the Dine Like a President Dinner starting at 6:30 p.m. May 2. This five-course feast features wine pairings from Rodney Strong Vineyards, selected 2013 American Winery of the Year by “Wine Enthusiast.” After dinner, Chef Moeller speaks on the topic Cooking for the President. Cost for the dinner is $125 per person. Seating is limited to 100; advance reservations required.
Both events take place in the elegant lakeside dining room of the Catawba Island Club. For reservations call Hayes Presidential Center Development Director Kathy Boukissen at 419-332-2081, ext. 226.
