Board of Directors of the Fort Wayne Philharmonic presents its first gala
fundraiser and auction in several years, PHILharmonious: Farm to Fork, featuring former White House chef John
Moeller, at Joseph Decuis Farm.
Bringing together Joseph Decuis’
top culinary experts with former White House Chef John Moeller, excellent
music, and one-of-a-kind auction items will create an unforgettable
evening, all in support of Fort Wayne Philharmonic Youth Education and
Community Engagement programs.
Joseph Decuis Farm, once called
"a farm dressed in a tuxedo," offers a spectacular setting for this special
event. Wagyu is arguably the finest tasting, healthiest beef in the world, and
Joseph Decuis is the only establishment of its kind in the United States
raising its own Wagyu with traditional Japanese husbandry practices — all
natural, humane, drug-free, and stress-free.
The menu will feature a Wagyu based
main course and other White House dishes prepared under the direction of Chef
Moeller (Seafood and vegetarian options are available). Moeller’s signature style features fresh seasonal produce, with a first
class presentation for each finished dish. Between
courses, Moeller will entertain with stories of his personal interactions serving
as chef to three First Families, including President
George H.W. Bush, President William Jefferson Clinton, and President George W.
Chef John Moeller has detailed his journey and
White House experience in the 2013 book, “Dining at the White House—From the President’s
Table to Yours.” Copies of the book will be available at the
The silent and live auctions will feature
diverse and unique items donated by artists and businesses in support of the Philharmonic.
They include exciting getaways, destination vacations, event tickets, fine
dining, jewelry, and more.
Proceeds from PHILharmonious will enable the Philharmonic to enrich the lives of tens of thousands of children and adults each season. The Philharmonic performs on stage, in schools, hospitals, homes, and all throughout the region – in venues where it can make the biggest difference. Help ensure the Philharmonic’s ability to sound – so it can continue to offer music literally to everyone in Northeast Indiana.
