Harvest Dinner

17th Annual LCC Foundation Harvest Dinner Gala

Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler! (Let The Good Times Roll!)

Wednesday, October 30, 2019

We are delighted to announce this year’s Harvest Dinner guest chef, Danielle Lewis, and our chairs, George and Diane McCully! Our guest chef hails from Louisiana and we are looking forward to an event filled with fabulous New Orleans-style food, jazz music, and great performances from faculty, students, and others. Mark your calendars for October 30, 2019 – and let us know if you’re interested in a table sponsorship. This event sells out every year by mid-summer, so also let us know if you’d like to be on the list for individual tickets. Please contact Tiana Marrone-Creech at (541) 463-5538 or tiana@laneccfoundation.org.

2019 Harvest Gala Guest Chef: Danielle Lewis, Executive Chef, Castor (www.castorcorvallis.com)
Chef Danielle Lewis was born in Chapel Hill, North Carolina and raised in Ruston, Louisiana.
Through her exposure to the rich and unique food culture in Louisiana, she cultivated her talents in
Southern cuisine. In 2006, her family relocated to Eugene, Oregon. Danielle began studying culinary arts at Lane Community College in the fall of 2009. During her time at LCC, she began her career at King Estate Winery, where she worked her way up to Sous Chef. While at Lane, Danielle learned the importance of sustainability and sourcing ingredients locally. In 2014, Danielle became Sous Chef at Marché in Eugene, Oregon. Shortly after, she became Chef de Cuisine at Membrillo Latin Kitchen. In 2017, Danielle helped open her current venture, Castor Kitchen and Bar in Corvallis. Her restaurant is
a dream come true—Castor embodies everything Danielle believes in: sourcing local and sustainable ingredients; working directly with farmers and purveyors; and a seasonally changing menu based on availability at local farms. The menu at Castor combines classical French techniques and the flavors
of the South. At Castor, Danielle has created a restaurant and atmosphere that inspire others in the
culinary industry and local community. Visit it when you are next in Corvallis!

As longtime attendees, George and Diane are thrilled to be chairing this year’s Harvest Dinner. “We look forward to sharing a wonderful evening with dinner conceived by Chef Danielle Lewis, prepared and served by the culinary arts and hospitality students at LCC.
