Wild Game Dinner at Meadow Brook Hall
September 23 @ 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM EDT$150
Take a walk on the culinary wild side at Meadow Brook Hall’s biggest annual fundraising experience—refreshed for 2021—the Wild Game Dinner & Auction. The event on Thursday, Sept. 23, features a strolling dinner, unique auction items and live music all set against the iconic backdrop of the National Historic Landmark, located in Rochester on the campus of Oakland University.
“Meadow Brook’s Wild Game Dinner is an evening you won’t soon forget,” said Shannon O’Berski, external relations director at Meadow Brook Hall. “Not only is the experience itself a unique night out, but every ticket has a big impact on Meadow Brook itself. As a self-supporting museum and cultural institution, we rely on touring, special events and community support keep our doors open—particularly as we continue to feel the impact of the pandemic. At Meadow Brook, every ticket counts and every dollar makes a difference.”
New this year will be a live performance from the local Americana band Athens Creek. Meadow Brook’s in-house chef has curated a strolling dinner menu featuring inventive takes on wild game cuisine, such as braised bison brisket chili and elk short rib ravioli with fortified tomato broth & shaved romano.
The evening will feature cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and a unique selection of silent auction items along the loggia terrace as the sun sets over the Great Estate. Choose from jewelry, travel experiences, exclusive packages, outdoor gear, hunting rifles and much more. Guests can try their luck in the winner’s choice raffle to win an exciting trip for two—for wine tasting in Napa Valley, golfing in Monterey or to see Hamilton on Broadway! Tickets are $100 each and only 100 tickets will be sold.
