The fourth annual Firefly Supper benefiting Doors of Hope will take place on Thursday, October 18 at Stone Gate Farm. Chefs Mitchell Murphree, Five Senses; Michael DeChirico and Tom Goodner, Adams Place Independent Living; Michael O'Bannon, retired pastor; and Jack Barakat, Milano II and Jack's Place will gather to prepare the meal.
"The Firefly Supper highlights the Doors of Hope mission, which is to strengthen our community by offering support services to women recently released from incarceration who are making the difficult transition back to societal life. The evening includes a wonderful meal prepared by talented local chefs in an elegant, rustic venue, served by the students from Blackman High School's Culinary Arts Department," says Firefly Supper committee chair Stephanie Kinard.
The local non-profit has two main goals: to reduce risk of recidivism by providing case management that focuses on transition planning and individual needs and by providing a pre-release education program to raise self-esteem and enhance the probability of finding and keeping employment after release.
