The Arkansas Children’s Hospital Auxiliary will host a la Carte on Thursday, April 13 beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Angel One Transport Hangar in Little Rock.


The annual event, which will be in person for the first time since 2019, will feature food and beverage tastings from dozens of Arkansas restaurants and caterers. Guests will also enjoy a silent auction and live music. Each year, a la Carte raises more than $100,000 for Arkansas Children’s Hospital. Tickets are $100 per person.


“Come hungry and ready for a night of tastings from 25 of some of our favorite Arkansas restaurants,” said Callie Gutierrez, 2023 a la Carte chair. “We are looking forward to once again meeting in person, and could not be more grateful to our sponsors, donors and community members for helping make the children of Arkansas better today and healthier tomorrow.”
