The Community Table for 2017

The 2017 Community Table was our sixth year at the Shakespeare Ranch and the first one with a water feature. The rain added to the unique experience of the event with guests escorted into the courtyard under umbrellas.  Many gathered around the beautiful outside fire pit to share one of the amazing appetizers prepared by Chef Ken Frank of La Toque or enjoy the Blue Vespa martini, La Toque’s signature cocktail.   around the firepit

Once the festivities moved inside for the sit-down dinner, wine, food and philanthropy filled the barn and like magic, the sun appeared. To complete the evening, Chef Ken Frank and staff provided a culinary masterpiece with the exclusive Community Table menu.
