Chef Nemorio's Special Fundraising Dinner

Our Head Chef, Nemorio Ramierz, asked us if we would open the Inn for a fundraising dinner for his mission trip to the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas in February with the Crafton Heights UP Church (CHUP). This will be the 7th year that CHUP is sending a group of adults to serve in this region. And of course, we would love to help them raise the funds to go help others in need.

This is not a Franklin Inn event.  We are just contributing the use of our resources.  This means that our regular menu will not be available and there will be no bar service.  Our General Manger, who is also a great cook, Chris, has volunteered to help Chef Nemorio prepare the meal and the wait staff will be members of the CHUP Mission Team. Isn't that cool?  John and I are looking forward to being guests in our own restaurant!

Chef Nemorio has created a wonderful special menu for this event. See the flyer below for menu details. It looks super yummy! I can't decide if I want the Salmon or Chicken selection.  I think I'll make John order the opposite of me so we can taste each others.

To purchase tickets you must see Chef Nemorio (He's at the Inn every day except Mondays) or call Gabe Kish at 412-922-1950. Space is limited. I'm not sure how long tickets will be available so don't hesitate because I think all who are going on the mission trip are responsible for selling a certain number of tickets.  This would make a great Christmas Gift. A night out of great food and companionship that will contribute to folks helping others.  On your next visit to the Inn, ask Nemorio more about the projects they'll be completing on this trip and the folks that they'll be helping.  (Click here for a flyer you can share and read the details better than the photo below.)
