Dine Out Monday Night at Germantown Café to Benefit the Jay Luther Scholarship Fund

Posted By on Wed, Feb 20, 2013 at 5:49 AM

It's hard to believe that it has been eight months since the shocking accidental death of Jay Luther of Germantown Café. But the Nashville culinary community has pulled together to keep his memory alive by establishing a Jay Luther Memorial Scholarship at Nashville State's Randy Rayburn School of Culinary Arts. This scholarship will help to support culinary students who are preparing to enter the industry.

To raise funds for the scholarship, Chris Lowry of Germantown Café is staging an incredibly generous event this Monday, Feb. 25. All you have to do is make a reservation to dine there between 5 and 10 p.m., and not only will the restaurant donate 100 percent of all food proceeds to the scholarship fund, but Lowry will personally match that amount to bump it up to a 200 percent donation.

Members of the Nashville Originals and other friends of Lowry and Luther have donated gift certificates, and silent and live auctions are planned to help stoke up the fund. Some of the announced highlights of the auction include dinners at Nero’s, Rumours East, Jimmy Kelly’s and Caffe Nonna. Provence has also donated a certificate for "Bread for a Year," but before you carboloaders get too excited, Kim Totzke has verified that this means two loaves a month. Apparently, she doesn't eat as much of her bread as I do, but it's still a very thoughtful gesture.

So clear your calendar, and head over to Germantown's website or call them at 615 242-3226 to make a reservation for a tableful of fun for a good cause.
