Trinity United Methodist Church will hold its fourth annual Cuisine for a Cause from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 6, at the church, 1581 Cambridge Blvd.

The event features hors d’oeuvres and a silent auction and benefits Bethlehem on Broad, a Christmas-season mission supported by Trinity.

“We have a kitchen team that prepares the deliciousness for the event,” said associate pastor Amy Aspey. “It’s a chance for people to come and enjoy some delicious food while helping a wonderful cause.”

The menu for the evening will include mini crab cakes, meatballs, chicken skewers, pesto parmesan pastries, veggie pasta salad, caprese skewers and for dessert, a full chocolate fountain stocked with strawberries, marshmallows, pretzels and cream puffs for dipping.

The cost to attend the event is a $20 per person minimum donation, Aspey said. Reservations will be accepted after Sunday services at the church or admission can be paid at the door.

The silent auction features items donated by area businesses and church members, she said.

“In the past, we’ve had things like sports tickets, dinner packages, dinner at one of our ministers’ homes, weekend getaways and a ‘meal of the month,’ where you have a different dish prepared by a church member and delivered to your door each month,” Aspey said.

New auction items for this year’s event will include a “turkey in a box” Thanksgiving meal donated by Cameron Mitchell catering; Mukha Custom Cosmetics gift certificate and basket of cosmetics; gift certificates from local businesses; and homemade food items donated by church members.

Items are still needed for the auction. Anyone interested in donating an item should contact Kristie Linard at klinard@candlewoodsuitespolaris.com; Pamela Hashem at Pamela.hashem@ prhconsultinggroup.com; or Pam Hagley at Pamela.hagely@yahoo. com.

Art work created by children in the church’s Sunday school program will be on display at the Cuisine for a Cause and up for bid, Aspey said.

“It’s a way to get the children in our church involved in the event,” she said.

A complimentary children’s party for youngsters in grades K-5 will be held during the Cuisine for a Cause, Aspey said.

“It’s not just babysitting,” she said. “There’s craft activities, a movie and games so that they can have their own event while their parents are enjoying the adult activity.”

Nursery care for younger children will also be available by reservation, Aspey said.

All proceeds from the Cuisine event will benefit Bethlehem on Broad.

Trinity United Methodist provides meal boxes for about 500 families each holiday season, Aspey said.
