What is Dîner en Vert?

A pop-up gala with the goal of celebrating community sustainability and our newest project - the HEART Kitchen!
Join Ann's Heart and Delaware Valley Vegan Education Group (VEG) as we throw a "green" gala!

Our event will showcase amazing sustainable, plant-based food, and ways in which to foster green and sustainable communities. It will also highlight the work being done by these two non-profits in our community, in partnership with others. And will raise funds for the HEART Kitchen - a community kitchen where everyone has a seat at the table.

Guests are asked to wear summer garden party attire featuring the color green.  To add to the excitement, our event location is up to YOU! That's right. This year guests will surprise US with their green-minded creativity. And don't forget the fun 'get out and about' scavenger hunt around Phoenixville.

It will be an event full of surprise, celebration, amazing eats, and green-minded fun!
How It Works
Guests will enjoy:
  • Delicious vegan treats in the form of a take-home vegan dinner, comprised of small plates from four local restaurants that they can heat up and enjoy at home
  • The chance to dress up (in 'green-minded' attire) and compete for 'Best Dressed' in our green-wear competition
    • This year with three categories: Best Male, Best Female, and Best Family Attire
  • An exciting scavenger hunt within the Borough of Phoenixville (with some surprise guest appearances along the way) that ends with a professional photo shoot (in your green apparel) and a take home bag of goodies (including your dinner to go)!
  • Some champagne to enjoy at sunset with us via Zoom at 8:15PM for our annual toast to the Summer Solstice!
  • A chance to WOW us with YOUR surprise location by turning a corner of your home, garden, driveway, garage (...get creative) into your own Dîner en Vert.  Show us YOUR GREEN and how you dine in style - in a green-minded way, of course. There are prizes for the most creative set ups!
  • An awesome online auction
  • A chance to support your local small businesses AND the work of Ann's Heart. 

We are getting ready to launch the HEART Kitchen - a community teaching kitchen with the goal of providing educational programming, community supported meals, and a place where EVERYONE has a seat at the table.

Show us your green at this year's Dîner en Vert!
Surprise & Celebration
Surprise & Celebration

This year we are 'turning the tables' on Dîner en Vert in two BIG ways!

First - we are taking Dîner en Vert VIRTUAL! Don't worry - even without a big gala style event, we have plenty of green-minded fund and surprise in store.

Second - we are putting YOU in the driver's seat and letting YOU add some surprise to our event.

Amazing Eats
Amazing Eats
While Dîner en Vert has always been focused on community sustainability, this year we are taking it to the next level. Help us sustain the community we love by buying a ticket to this year's event. Instead of asking our favorite restaurants to donate delicious plates to our event as they have done in the past, we are having them cater our event. That's right - part of your ticket price goest to support the restaurants we all love so that they can weather this national crisis. We are also ensuring that all our fantastic prizes this year are gift cards to local shops, restaurants, and breweries so you can continue to #shoplocal and #supportlocal while supporting a great cause. What better way to show PXV some love?!

A Focus on Sustainability

We are putting a significant amount of effort into ensuring our event is as low-footprint as possible. We are teaming up with some amazing restaurants and service providers to ensure our dinner takes the term "green gala" to a new level!

Our dinnerware (containers, plates, napkins, and utensils) and food will be 100% compostable! With the help of a local composting company, Back to Earth Compost, we will be providing a means for YOU to package your waste for immediate composting at the end of the event. 

Our dinner will be 100% plant-based, vegan food so that it reflects the hightest standards in sustainable food sources. 

Going green never tasted so good!

Two Non-Profits

The proceeds from this year's event will go solely towards the development of the HEART Kitchen at the Home of Education, Arts, Resources, and Technology.
Becuase Ann's Heart and Delaware Valley Vegan Education Group agreed that the HEART Kitchen will be needed even more in the wake of COVID-19 and in the future will house the important programs of both our organizations. Help us realize our vision and make the HEART Kitchen a reality.
The mission of Ann's Heart is to provide a place of welcome and human services for all Phoenixville area people. Our new initiative is to re-imagine the old Sacred Heart School into a community education center. We call it the Home of Education, Arts, Resources, and Technology - HEART.
Our mission is to educate residents of the Delaware Valley about the philosophical, environmental, and health benefits of a vegan lifestyle, and to provide support to anyone attempting to incorporate more plant foods into their diet. We partner with like-minded organizations and businesses to help strengthen local communities.

It's the beginning of a beautiful partnership...

What started as a fun way to launch our two new projects was just the start of what is becoming a beautiful partnership. In the future, the HEART will be home to many of Delaware Valley VEG's educational programming.

Help us make our dream a reality and support our green gala - Dîner en Vert!
