What is the Shuffle?
This year marks the 75th anniversary of the Oxford-Lafayette County Chamber of Commerce and we plan to
celebrate with a 75th Anniversary Diamond Jubilee Gala, a black-tie event on the evening of June 4th. Because
it is such a special event for our organization and our business community, we hope to include as many of our
Chamber member restaurants and caterers as possible with a unique opportunity to be involved in the food
portion of the evening. With the event we are adding our first ever “Chamber Chef Shuffle.”
The Chamber will feature our fantastic professional and amateur chefs who are members of our Chamber of
Commerce, as you serve up samples of your fabulous food fares for guests. Chefs are asked to serve 3-5 of
your favorite dishes for a variety tasting. Chefs will need to submit a menu of your planned menu offerings to
the Chamber, to ensure the diversity of the options and non-duplication of items.
The Chamber will give each participating chef a $200 "buy-in" to cover a portion of your costs. We encourage
you to work with your food vendors and suppliers to get food at little, to no cost. We want this to be cost
effective for you, but we also want this to be your opportunity to SHINE at this special community event! The
Chamber will also provide all tables, linens, plate ware and flatware. You will be responsible for specialty
service or special plate ware you intend to use. No drinks will be needed, the Chamber will handle all
beverage requirements.
The Chamber commits to featuring each chef on our event website, press releases, newspaper advertising,
radio advertising, and on social media. We want you to get the most out of this experience!
The deadline to submit the Commitment form is Friday, May 1, 2015. All chefs will be notified of menu
