Youth Home hosts its annual foodie fundraiser, The Next Course, at the William J. Clinton Presidential Library on November 3rd. This unique, culinary dining experience welcomes amateur and practiced foodies to five course dinner complete with professional chefs’ tips and instruction on how to prepare the next course.
