Capital Grille to present fundraising luncheon Sept. 30 benefitting Volunteers in Medicine


Capital Grille is hosting a fundraising luncheon Sept. 30 named "The Capital Affair" to benefit Volunteers in Medicine.

Thanks to Brooks Brothers, Erin Healy Designs and Cabi, guests will enjoy a firsthand experience of finery and fashion for this fall with a special, informal fashion show and program emceed by WJXT morning news anchor Joy Purdy. In addition to a special meal, guests will also enjoy complimentary sparkling rosé and prosecco provided by event sponsor Bacardi and a choice of one of The Capital Grille’s crafted cocktails, including its signature "StoliDoli."

“We are thrilled to host this exceptional event and to support Volunteers in Medicine in their mission to provide healthcare services and programs for our vulnerable, working, uninsured individuals and families,” said Dan Skweres, managing partner of The Capital Grille. "Brandy Robertson, our sales manager, and our Executive Chef Jared Gilbert have pulled out all the stops to create the ultimate Capital Grille experience while helping raise funds for such a worthwhile organization."

In addition, guests will have the opportunity to participate in a silent auction featuring gift baskets and one-of-a-kind experiences, including the chance to bid on one of Brooks Brothers’ suits and much more. Other event partners include Arlington Toyota, Beard’s Jewelry and more.

Event tickets and proceeds will directly benefit patient services and programs provided by Volunteers in Medicine, a volunteer-driven, full-service clinic providing free primary and specialty medical care to Northeast Floridians who are vulnerable, working or uninsured. Several sponsorships are available for purchase ranging from $2,500 to $10,000. Tables start at $500, and individual tickets can be purchased for $150. The event will host no more than 120 guests.
