Paint the Town To Benefit Children's Healthcare
Join Acclaimed Atlanta Chef Kevin Rathbun for Paint the Town Night of food, wine and art to benefit Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and Pure Imagination, according to a news release.
Mark and Layla Gunn, owners of The Melting Pot Atlanta-area restaurants, are proud to announce the return of the highly anticipated Paint the Town charity event on Saturday, November 3, 2012, featuring signature cuisine from guest chef Kevin Rathbun of Rathbun’s, Kevin Rathbun Steak and Krog Bar along with prized artwork from renowned artist Christopher M to benefit Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and Pure Imagination Charity.
Catered to the area’s gourmands and wine connoisseurs, guests will experience an impressive selection of wines carefully selected by The Melting Pot owner and sommelier Mark Gunn, including Chateau Boswell, Jacquelynn and Dr. Stephens wines throughout the VIP reception, as they browse the awe-inspiring painting collection of Christopher M and other featured artists at the Vinings Gallery. While enjoying a delicious assortment of passed hors d’oeuvres prepared by chef Rathbun, attendees are invited to participate in both live and silent auctions featuring highly coveted wine-centric items, with all monies raised going directly to the featured charities.
Renowned artist Christopher M enchants fans with his dramatic imagery as he creates vivid oil paintings of exquisite menu items and composed action images. The California native channels a chef’s definitive attention-to-detail and labor-of-love approach to his paintings as he carefully creates each distinctive oil painting to resemble a chef’s passion for cooking and all things culinary. Christopher M is graciously donating a one-of-a-kind portrait of chef Kevin Rathbun for the event’s live auction.
