What’s the best foodie event in town? That’s actually not a hard question to answer. Philanthropic Foodies (on Sunday, August 2nd 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Sky Armory) takes the cake. This annual culinary-based fundraiser may sound like just another CNY food event but it’s much more than that and the menu is anything but ordinary.
“The mission and goal is very simple — it’s to eat, drink and give back,” explains Renee Duffy, co-creator of Philanthropic Foodies, a group dedicated to putting on a culinary showcase event each year to raise money and awareness for local nonprofit organizations.
The third annual Philanthropic Foodies dinner will benefit the local nonprofits Friends of Dorothy House, Signature Music and CancerConnects.
