Chefs Mitchell Murphree, Five Senses; Michael Dechirico and Tom Goodner, Adams Place Independent Living; Michael O’Bannon, retired pastor; and Jack Barakat, Milano II and Jack’s Place gathered to prepare the fabulous meal.The meal was served by the students from Blackman High School’s Culinary Arts Department.

“The Firefly Supper highlights the Doors of Hope mission, which is to strengthen our community by offering support services to women recently released from incarceration who are making the difficult transition back to societal life,” said Firefly Supper committee chair Stephanie Kinard. Angel Herman spoke briefly to the guests about what Doors of Hope has meant to her, stressing the importance of helping more women with the funds raised this evening.
