Share this news:

Vibrant Occasions showcased culinary tips on local television, hinting at an upcoming fundraising event. The event promises elegance, culinary delights, and support for a noble cause. Stay tuned for an unforgettable evening of philanthropy and inspiration.

Vibrant Occasions recently made a flavorful appearance on THV 11's The Vine. Chef Serge Krikorian showcased his culinary expertise alongside co-hosts Adam Bledsoe and Ashley King, joined by Justin Buck from the Wolfe Street Foundation. During the segment, Chef Krikorian delighted viewers with the preparation of Caribbean citrus chicken with a mango salsa, a tantalizing dish that is one of chef Serge’s favorites.

Joining this segment with Krikorian was Justin Buck with the Wolfe Street Foundation to discuss the upcoming Red Carpet Recovery Gala 2024. Vibrant Occasions is proud to be the exclusive caterer for this forthcoming event hosted by the Wolfe Street Foundation.

The Red Carpet Recovery Gala, set to take place on April 25th at The Venue at Westwind in Maumelle, promises an evening of elegance and philanthropy. Guests will indulge in a dinner prepared by Vibrant Occasions, enjoy premium mocktails, participate in live and silent auctions, and be inspired by stories of recovery.

Former Razorback and Dallas Cowboy, Darren McFadden, will serve as the keynote speaker, adding an extra layer of excitement to the event. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet McFadden, capture photos, and receive autographs from the legendary athlete.

Proceeds from the Red Carpet Recovery Gala will support the vital mission of the Wolfe Street Foundation, an addiction recovery group based in Little Rock. The foundation offers a range of support services, including support groups, recovery housing, community events, and one-to-one peer recovery support.

"We had a delicious time on The Vine yesterday," remarked chef Serge Krikorian with Vibrant Occasions following the segment. "We can't wait to see you at this event!"

About Vibrant Occasions: Chef Serge Krikorian and his wife, Mary Krikorian, started their catering business in 2002 and have been in the family restaurant business since 1994. Having catered thousands of events over the years as Dinner’s Ready, they launched Vibrant Occasions Catering, a new name that more accurately depicts the level of food and service provided at weddings and social events. Krikorian was born in Lebanon and moved to the United States with his family as an adult entering college. He now hails from the quaint town of Benton, Arkansas. His southern hospitality paired with his penchant for developing unique international fusion-style recipes, especially sauces, has garnered his reputation as foodies' fan favorite in his community and now on the Youtube space for his cooking show, Cooking with the Kriks. After years of dreaming about owning a mobile kitchen, in December 2020, Serge and Mary launched Our Mobile Kitchen with the intention of providing fresh, 5-star quality chef-prepared cuisine to patrons visiting where the mobile kitchen is parked or on site for catered weddings and social, private or corporate events. Krikorian is an alumnus of Henderson State University where he studied business earning his Bachelor’s Degree and met his wife, Mary. He earned his MBA from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville. Serge became a restaurant entrepreneur when he purchased an old, run-down pizza parlor he and Mary revived called Sergio’s Pizza. After a few years, they knew the restaurant business was not for them. Mary booked their first official catering gig, much to Serge’s surprise. They began receiving more and more requests for catering luncheons and events. The catering business took over after six months and they never looked back. They have three sons who often work in the business around their academic and career schedules, making their enterprise a family-built business. 

About Us: Vibrant Occasions is a full-service catering company based in Arkansas serving the entire state and beyond specializing in private events, corporate events, weddings and more.
