Cafe at Adele’s biggest events of each year, began humbly and from a place of love of music and family, respectively, and today supports The Greenhouse Project, a public-private educational facility that began as Karen’s dream and has grown into a thriving agricultural program at Carson High School, providing food to those in need in Carson City.

The Greenhouse Project received its non-profit status and construction completed in 2009, and in 2010 had it’s first full year of production.

The annual Concert Under the Stars, began 16 years ago as an expression of Charlie’s love and passion for great music, a part of his life since his 1960s Santa Cruz Days. The event evolved six years ago into Concert Under the Stars, A Benefit for The Greenhouse Project.  For the first time this year the beloved concert will be held at the Brewery Arts Center in Carson City.  The link below will take you to TGP’s website.

The event has welcomed such legends as Booker T. Jones, Bill Champlin (Sons of Champlin), Little Feat, War, Fred Tackett & Paul Barrare, Pablo Cruise, Dan Hicks & The Hot Licks, Greg Brown, Collin Raye, Men at Work, The Rowan Bros., David Lindley, most recently The Little River Band, and so many others. This has become one of the most anticipated, sold-out events in Carson City. In addition to raising money for continuing Greenhouse Project operations, the evening also supports Capital City FFA.  Check out the latest Carson City Greenhouse fundraising projects here…

The Celebrity Chef & Harvest Dinner began as a one-time event to honor the Abowd Family Patriarch and Charlie’s father, Paul. That first event showcased the culinary talents of many of Northern Nevada’s best chefs and since, has become a second benefit event for The Greenhouse Project.

World-renown Chef Mark Estee and his Campo staff have joined Charlie and Café-at-Adele’s staff in previous years, presenting an evening of impeccable fine dining paired with beautiful wines including unique auction items.  For the 2016 Annual Harvest Dinner, from Blend, Chefs Josh & Whitney Deri teamed up with Charlie for a very special culinary event.  For 2017, a notable Chef (to be announced) will participate in what has become a highly anticipated annual event. 

The 2016 Celebrity Chef & Harvest Dinner was a great fundraising success and truly a feast for the senses.


In the spirit of Benefit Events Adele’s was proud to support the Carson Tahoe SPCA with this SPECIAL EVENT and says “THANKS” to our Community for their support!
