Dutch Divine is an extraordinary Holland Hall event showcasing alumni talent in the musical and culinary arts. This unique event features entertainment by alumni musicians as well as food and drink pairings provided by alumni chefs. This blending of talent and creativity produces a sophisticated experience for our entire community to enjoy.
Dutch Divine is presented by the Holland Hall Alumni Association with the mission to not only highlight the talent of our graduates but also to provide tuition assistance. The goal is to ensure that tuition is never a barrier for the child of an alumnus, a current member of the Holland Hall community or the family of our retirees.
The Holland Hall Alumni Association is bringing back Dutch Divine — a night of gourmet food, fine wines and music provided by alumni — on Nov. 6.
This year’s menu is Cafeteria Chic, in honor of its new location in the A.R. and Marylouise Tandy Dining and Wellness Center. But you know you won’t get macaroni and cheese with food prepared by local restaurant owner and chef Justin Thompson ’98 and Juniper head chef Myles McClanahan ’98. Current parent and owner/creative director of The Cheese Shop, Kate Atkinson, will round out the culinary staff for this year’s event. Wines are provided by wineries with local ties — Darms Lane, 32 Winds and Downward Dog — and Nicholas Foster ’10 will serenade the crowd, hopefully with some tracks from his latest album, “Trophy Husband,” from Horton Records.
Tickets are $125, and sponsorships are available to honor your favorite alumna/alumnus, faculty member or class. All proceeds benefit the Alumni Fund for Financial Aid.
