Additionally, the white tablecloth dinner for 200 guests will feature local wines, beer and custom cocktails.

“Nugget Markets is proud to partner with the Center for Land-Based Learning to present this fantastic event and support the nonprofit as a whole,” said Kate Stille, Vice President of Marketing and Communications for Nugget Markets. “Part of our key focus at Nugget Markets is to support those who produce the food that we then share with our guests, and this is a great way to do it.”
