As part of a family tradition for the past three decades, Harry’s Hospitality Group in Delaware hosts an annual dinner in February with the Ministry of Caring. This year, things are a little different, since the event, which normally takes place at the Ministry, transitions to a virtual to-go Spanish dinner on April 11.
The dinner consists of a three-course meal featuring a mixed greens salad with Manchego cheese and a garlic-pimento vinaigrette to start. A Valenciana paella features as the entrée alongside saffron rice with chicken, chorizo, shrimp, clams, mussels and calamari, while a delicious Spanish custard flan with a caramel custard sauce serves as dessert, bringing the total of the meal to $25. As an additional bonus, a pint of red sangria can be added on for $7.50.
This year’s takeout benefit dinner has already achieved great success by selling out after only a few days after registration opened, with nearly 200 people reserving their slots.
The Ministry of Caring began in 1976 in Wilmington to help the homeless and poorer areas in need. Today, the Ministry is a diverse community with a mission to help those less fortunate through nutritious meals, housing, childcare, educational services and so much more.
All proceeds from the event go toward the Ministry of Caring, with donations still being accepted. In 2022, Harry’s Hospitality Group’s annual dinner returns to its February schedule. Be on the lookout for ticket registration as it becomes available.
