Chef John Folse and Cypress Springs Mercedarian Prayer Center are proud to announce the seventh annual Dining by Design event in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on Sunday August 23rd beginning at 4:30 pm. This gourmet luxury dining experience (held at Crowne Plaza Hotel in Baton Rouge) combines the chefs' culinary artistry with the creativity of local designers and florists to create a visual and edible feast for the eyes and palate. This fundraising event will benefit Cypress Springs Mercedarian Prayer Center.
Annually, six national Chefs and four Louisiana chefs are selected for participation in this upscale event. The talent and spirituality of local florists and designers are seen on every table through their imaginative floral artistry.
In 2001, Sister Dulce Maria arrived in Baton Rouge. Through Sister Dulce's mission of caring for the sick and dying, as well as offering spiritual guidance to those who seek the Lord, more than 14,000 souls have been touched by her healing hands. Global visitors have sought Sister from places as far away as Russia. Every Thursday is "cancer night," when she receives telephone calls from the terminally ill. Some have seen Sister at her office; others have only heard of her special gift and believed.
"I've seen patients from all over the world," said Sister Dulce Maria. "Many healing miracles have occurred of body and soul, and I have witnessed many conversions. I am just so grateful to God that he continues to send chefs and designers every year who graciously give their time and talent to help us raise funds to keep the ministry going."
"One man gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want. A liberal man will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered." Proverbs 11:24-25
