Having the BEST local chefs and the BEST local charities together for one night of celebration is truly magical. The work you put into this event does not go unnoticed. Thank you for all that you do to bring this community together.

I have had the pleasure of attending most of the events, loved that it helps small local charities. The very first year, I won the auction for chefs to come cook at my house, for eight of us. We had great time with Chefs Eva, Kevin and Yann, food and wine amazing. We still talk about it. Then few years later won the auction for 20 at Sky Armory, another amazing night. Keep it going! ~ Pamela Fortino


We have attended this event for a number of years and have never been disappointed by the food, drink, venue, or the hosts! The best part is knowing all the good that comes out of this event with the charities that are supported! Thank you for continuing to hold this every summer! ~ Kathleen Rothbaler Becker


We always look forward to this event each year. We have attended this event for a number of years and have enjoyed the different venues. Looking forward to the Zoo this year. Love trying different food and drinks from some amazing and creative chefs. The silent and live auction is also fun. Plus the money raised goes to some great charities. Thanks to the committee for you hard work. ~ Christine Visconti


This event combines all of my favorite things! Amazing food from local chefs, great drinks and supporting local non profits! Thankful for the wonderful team behind the scenes! ~ Heather Rodriguez


This event is a first class event with fabulous food and great opportunity to interact with some of the best local chefs. It is a great way to network with a diverse group of our community’s business leaders through networking and the event promotion. All this, while having a great time! ~ Jennifer Cline


Ed and I so enjoyed your inaugural event at Gentile's last year. We attended with 4 friends and we all remarked on the wonderful food, drink, music and staff. We also bid on and won some of the great and fun items during the "Silent auction". The charities selected to receive the proceeds are so deserving and were delighted at the turnout. The day could not have been any better and we have told others about the event and have recommended it highly. WHAT A FUN DAY! THANK YOU! ~ Marie & Ed Rothbaler


Awesome food and drink! Food gets better every year. Great time supporting great causes. I hope there is pork belly again this year! ~ Brian Steitz


Philanthropic Foodies was a remarkable evening; three of the area's top chefs, in an atmosphere filled with wonderful people, all while supporting a good cause. ~ Eric Hinman


Philanthropic Foodies – Great Food, Great Cause, Great People – what more could you ask for? Last year’s inaugural Philanthropic Foodies was a terrific time. The food was absolutely outstanding, giving all of us the opportunity to sample some of the best efforts from three of Syracuse’s finest chef’s. Add in wine pairings, a raw bar and live music and you have a recipe for an evening of fun. Knowing that we were supporting local charities, made even the desserts a little sweeter.
