The Historic West Bottoms, 12th Street Bridge District in Kansas City, MO is host to some amazing charities who do amazing things. On May 15, 2016 , Full Moon Productions was happy to partner for the 3rd year in a row with The Child Protection Agency for a "rib-dilly-licious" - Cooks for Courage! Great Chefs, Great Cause and Great People!
foodNow, an all-volunteer gala provides a creative approach to raising awareness and funding for local, healthier eating in Greater Kansas City. Local farmers and local chefs come together to bring a unique local food experience to the West Bottoms, "the original Kansas City", where the roots of agriculture in the Midwest began.
Attendees mingled in the midst of the high stone arches of the 12th Street Bridge as they shared in local libations, small bites and a silent auction brimming full of food and wine. As sunset approached, they were ushered to find a seat at the table. Row crop tables spanned the bridge where farmers traveled down to bring their bounty in centuries past. Everyone was served a three course dinner by the finest local chefs created from today's local bounty.
I love the tables and the contrast of the white table cloths under the dark bridge. I’m reminded of New York. tres elegant!
It was quite charming, especially with the old warehouses nearby. It is the “French Bottoms” after all!
That looks like an amazing setting for a dinner. It really transformed at night.
Who wouldn’t want to eat an elegant dinner under an old bridge in one of Kansas City’s most historic areas?
