Restaurant Paradis held its third annual Prohibition Repeal Wine Dinner, benefiting Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center, on Dec. 9. Through ticket purchases and bar sales, $800 was raised for the Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center.
Guests were invited to dress-up and partake in a 1930s-themed night in which vintage cocktails were poured and wines from the Copper Cane Wines & Provisions collection were featured. In addition to a four-course wine pairing and a four-course dinner provided by Chef Mark Eichin and his culinary team, guests commemorated the evening with Epic Photo Co.’s photo booth, partook in poker games, and listened to Ike Bartley on the saxophone.
“The dinner was an intimate event filled with laughter, food pairings which took you back in time, and amazing vintage costumes,” said Restaurant Paradis owner Monica Cosenzi. “I look forward to seeing how this event grows throughout the years as we aim to raise more money for local charities.”
The $800 raised from the event will go toward Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center’s mission to prevent child abuse and neglect, protect our children in Okaloosa and Walton counties and restore the lives of child abuse and neglect victims.
