TVH in the Americas strives to make a positive impact in the community and has been a proud supporter of the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Kansas City Olathe Chapter since 2015. To help the club continue its mission of serving Olathe's youth, TVH and the Olathe Chapter hosted a first time culinary themed fundraising event called Tour de Fork.
This 250 person event was attended by benefactors of the Club and supporting organizations within the community. Guests were served foods from all over the world in a culturally immersed dinner prepared by guest chefs Renee Kelly and Rob Magee. In addition to the food world tour, guests enjoyed a cocktail hour with drinks from mixologist Puka Pumba.
Tour de Fork generated much needed funds for the club through silent, super silent and live auctions. Guests bid on items ranging from gift cards to exotic trips. The golden ticket item was a trip to the Dominican Republic and raised $6,000 on its own. Overall, the event raised over $130,000 net for the Olathe Chapter. With this money the club can now continue to better the lives of Olathe's youth.
