Circa 1886 Executive chef Marc Collins, former Charleston Grill chef Bob Waggoner and two very special guest chefs are joining together to host the ‘Friends of Bob Waggoner’ event to benefit Louie’s Kids.

Collins and Waggoner, along with Wally Joe of Acre Restaurant in Memphis, Mark Monette with Flagstaff House Restaurant in Boulder and Monettes in Hawaii will be dishing up five-course dinners in order to raise funds to help fight childhood obesity. Wine pairings will be included.

To encourage guests to sing up early, the first 32 people who sign up for the event will receive seats at the August 17th taping of Waggoner’s weekly cooking show, “U Cook with Chef Bob.” These lucky guests will be able to taste two courses and wine during the taping.

To purchase tickets for the August 18th event, call Circa 1886 at (843) 853-782. Tickets are $75 per person.
