Porchlight’s Original Chefs Auction offers guests a truly refreshing collaboration of compassion and cuisine in celebration of Porchlight’s vital service to the homeless in our community.  Guests sample small plates of delicious appetizers, sip cocktails and enjoy live music in the vibrant Wisconsin Institutes of Discovery.  Participating restaurants include so many Madison favorites: Cooper’s Tavern, Pig in a Fur Coat, Sardine, L’Etoile, Bunky’s Café, Daisy Café and Cupcakery, and more! The evening’s highpoint is the spirited live auction featuring unique packages including: a catered party for 30 on the Pontoon Porch house boat, a private five-course dinner with wine in your own home for 8 guests, and a private tour of Ale Asylum, limo ride, and dinner at Cooper’s Tavern. The cost of the event is $50 or $400 for a table of 8. All funds support Porchlight’s emergency shelter and services provided to homeless families and individuals in Dane County.
