The evening includes an open bar, silent auction, and special announcements.
Chaired by David Andrews and Carlo Barone with Stephen Hoyl as honorary chair, the event is presented by Lone Star Monarchs.
The silent auction is live now! Check out the offerings here.
About Salum Restaurant: Dallas' contemporary American restaurant, is celebrating 16 years of trendsetting cuisine. Chef and Owner Abraham Salum is a graduate of New England Culinary Institute in Montpelier, Vermont, and continued his education by working in kitchens in France, Belgium, Mexico and the United States. His vision is to create a restaurant that sets standards rather than follows them. Salum is committed to becoming a food and beverage destination that is celebrated by its guests, distinguished by food that is extraordinary, and an attentive professional staff that is well educated on cuisine and wine.
From Abraham Salum, Owner and Executive Chef: A few months ago we experienced extensive water damage caused by an awning which was ripped off of the building in a storm. The awning was thrown up on the roof, creating a hole that allowed water to pour into the building. The damage was wide-ranging and resulted in our having to close the restaurant. We have since repaired the damage, completely refurnished the interior and are honored to support Bryan's House with A Night of Hope Dinner celebrating our Grand Reopening.
From David Andrews, Co-Chair: Abraham paid his entire staff during the time Salum was closed. Not only did he pay employees’ salaries, but he compensated his staff for what they normally would have made in tips, too! I have known Abraham for about 15 years and he has ALWAYS given back to the community more than most. That is why Carlo and I wanted to host the dinner at Salum - to support him in return for the way he has supported the community!
