Harvest 2018

What: 5th Annual Harvest benefiting North Texas Food Bank

Where: Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden

The 411: Experienced co-chairs Maggie Kipp and Melinda Knowles knew better than to let a late summer shower rain on their philanthropic parade. Along with chef chair Stephan Pyles, the trio welcomed more than 450 guests who were ready to eat, drink, and mingle for one last al fresco feast before fall.

This year's event featured samplings from 23 food stations, dancing to beats by the dynamic DJ Lucy Wrubel, and a solid silent auction. More than $191,000 net revenue was raised for the North Texas Food Bank — a top-ranked nonprofit hunger-relief organization that will use these funds to feed more than 570,000 people.
