Guests can also enjoy our complimentary wine-tasting table, and participate in our cash 50-50 raffle and silent auction of donated fine art, jewelry, and more.  Fred Carpenter will serve as Master of Ceremonies, deejay, and announcer.

Tickets are priced at $35 each, and include a ballot on which to vote for your favorite chef entry.  Best Sweet, Best Savory, and our coveted Best of the Best awards will be given.  Only a limited number of tickets will be sold. They are available now at the circulation desk of the Payson Public Library at 328 N.
