On Saturday, July 29, the festivities continued when world-renowned chef Emeril Lagasse’s cowboys took the reins in the kitchen to prepare an extraordinary dinner at Shakespeare Ranch. Guests enjoyed the best of his signature cuisine with a selection of fine wine and spirits. The evening culminated with an intimate performance by The Commodores.
