A Date With A Plate

is a two-day event that celebrates exquisite table décor as interpreted and presented by professional event planners, florists, interior decorators and caterers, as well as individuals sharing their aesthetic passion through their personal collections or inspired entertaining style.  The event features an evening Patrons’ Party and the next day’s “Second Helping” which includes fun and informative lectures. Both events feature either live and silent auction items or raffle opportunities. Funds are generated through admission/ticket sales, Ad Book solicitations and from proceeds of auction/raffle items.

Time & Place

To be held on May 2 – 3, 2017 at Moulin at Sherman Mills.


Invitations to our 2017 event will be mailed in March 2017. Sponsorship and advertising details will be available late Fall 2016.


Monies raised from this event will be directed towards Project A.L.S. and the work being done at Penn Medicine to better understand the growing epidemic of neurodegenerative diseases better known as ALS (also called Lou Gehrig’s disease), Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Huntington’s.  Unless we act now, by 2020, 1 in 25 Americans will be afflicted with one of these diseases.  Project A.L.S. scientists collaborate and share data openly toward the first effective therapies.

Collectors’ & Entertainers’ Series

Always a special part of our event, invited private collectors and entertaining enthusiasts display their own unique interpretation of “A Date with a Plate”.


We will begin to unveil our list of existing Presenters in Summer 2016.
