Guests at the TACA RBC Wealth Management Custom Auction Gala love and appreciate exquisite cuisine. No wonder the September 20th event is held at the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek with every room in the place filled with beautiful people.
For that reason, dining is a priority when selecting the limited number of items put up for bid. For this first edible offering, TACA has arranged a first with one of Dallas’ fav foodie couples.
At Home With The Rathbuns* (Value: Priceless)
One of Dallas’ favorite restaurant couples, Tracy and Kent Rathbun, has been juggling their businesses (Shinsei, Abacus, Jasper’s, Blue Plate Kitchen, KR Elements, etc.), their family including kiddos Max and Garrett and plans for a new home. After enjoying a few years of the penthouse lifestyle across from NorthPark, they found the perfect spot to build their dream home. Plans had to fit their unique demands of raising a family and culinary perfection. Now, the lucky bidding couple and 8 guests will be among the first to experience the Rathbun definition of entertaining excellence in the new digs. Of course, there will be a tour of their kitchen and wine room. But there’s so much more and decisions to be made including:
- A five-course dinner complete with wine pairings masterminded by Kent himself.
- The winning bidder will have the challenge of deciding where in the house to have the dinner — the dining room? The wine room? Poolside? Or, how about in the culinary center around the 20-foot kitchen island watching the chef at work?
- A personal tour of the Rathbuns’ collection of local art.
Make sure you take photos of the meal and home because this is one that your friends just won’t believe.
