100% of tickets sales of Wichita By E.B. Dinner Series VI to benefit Phillips Fundamental Learning Center

Wichita By E.B. Dinner Series - Christmas Dinner (1)

It’s time to unveil the final Wichita By E.B. Dinner Series of the year. This one will be extra special for me. The previous five dinner series have all gone back to support the restaurants we’ve hosted them at. It was a way to give back to the hard-working industry that deserves more love each and every day. For Dinner Series VI, I wanted to switch gears and do something for the community, not just the community, but the future of it: our kids.

I’m thrilled to announce Wichita By E.B. Dinner Series VI will return to Station 8 BBQ for a special holiday-themed charity night. 100% of ticket sales will benefit the Phillips Fundamental Learning Center, an organization who empowers children, especially those with dyslexia, by teaching them to read, write and spell; educates adults by providing research-based literacy programs for children; and enlightens parents and the broader community to the educational and health needs of their children. Our goal is to raise $5,000 for the charity and donate the money in honor of Gretchen Andeel, one of the founders who passed away earlier this year.

To make this event possible, I want to thank Foulston Siefkin LLP, who are the title sponsors for the dinner. Because of them, they were able to turn this idea into a reality for me.

We also have some special sponsors who helped make this night possible: Station 8 BBQ, Una Vida Tequila, DJ Carbon, The Kansas Gastronomist, and Tightwrapz Printshop.

So what exactly is the Wichita By E.B. Dinner Series?

This dinner series is a limited ticketed dinner event where diners enjoy a meal prepared by the owners and chefs and don’t get a say in anything. We come in and enjoy a blind course. Having an open mind and appetite always helps (also if you have food allergies, this probably isn’t recommended). This is a cool, personal, intimate time when we connect on food, have good conversation, share some drinks, talk to the owners, and just have a good time.

What are the deets?

Dinner Series VI will take place, Monday, Dec. 4 on an evening when Station 8 BBQ is typically closed.

The cost of the dinner series

Truth be told, this won’t be a cheap night, but rest assured your money will go to a great cause. 100% of the ticket price will go directly to Phillips Fundamental Learning Center.

The ticket price for the dinner will be $95 + tax.

What else to expect

What does the $95 get you? I have a lot planned for everyone!

For starters, the cost of the ticket gets you a meal from Station 8 BBQ, one of my personal favorite restaurants in town. Drinks will be provided by Una Vida Tequila, but non-alcoholic beverages will also be available, such as Cheerwine, bottled water, and more. Dessert will also be provided by a special someone, which will be a surprise at the dinner. Music entertainment will be provided by DJ Carbon.

But wait, there’s more. Every ticket holder will receive a limited edition Wichita By E.B. shirt from our official apparel producer, Tightwrapz Printshop. You will also have the opportunity to get additional swag at a discounted rate and save on shipping as everything will be handed out at the dinner.

You can expect another surprise or two at what will essentially be a big Christmas party for a wonderful cause.

The Wichita By E.B. Dinner Series will be more than just a dinner, it’ll be an experience. You will come, make new friends, have a little Q&A with myself and the owner, enjoy some delicious food, perhaps take a shot of tequila or two, be around other foodies and have a cool night to talk about.

How can someone purchase tickets?

Like all other events, it will be first come, first served so it gives everyone an equal chance. A link to purchase tickets will be released in our newsletter. The link will be published in our November newsletter drop in the middle of the month. Two emails will go out: one to our regular newsletter subscribers in mid-November, and the second to the Wichita By E.B. patrons who donated to our September pledge drive. Patrons will receive an email at the start of November to give them a heads-up of when their ticket link will go live.

I’m finalizing the number of tickets but we are looking at around 40 tickets. Once the tickets sell out, they’re gone. If it’s anything like the last dinner series at Station 8 BBQ, it’ll sell out in about a minute.

If the form isn’t working, head here.

Also check your spam folder when the email comes out.

Make sure to get signed up for the newsletter. Stay tuned for more!

Until then, shout out again to  Foulston Siefkin LLP for helping make this possible.
