“An Edible Evening” - the Recipe for Success!

Raising funds to provide fresh produce for Rochester’s Food Pantry

Sunshine, volunteers, organic grow mix and seeds have provided the perfect summer recipe for KidzKare’s Raising Rochester program.

To help celebrate the success of the program and assure a proper 2015 planting, KidzKare will host the second annual “Edible Evening” fundraiser to support the garden project.  The family event will be held at the Van Hoosen Farm on Friday, October 10th from 5:30 – 8:00 p.m.

Sponsored by several local businesses, the Royal Park Hotel will feature Chef’s Selections of harvest time foods.  Whole Foods, Williams Sonoma, Paint Creek Cider Mill and Healthy and “Going Green with Colleen” will all present harvest time “food demos” along with catered foods to accommodate every appetite.  There will be a cash bar.

Rochester Hills Museum will be offering hayrides around the property and children will also enjoy pumpkin decorating, story time in the corn crib and an opportunity to paint with “Pinot’s Palatte!”

Advanced tickets are recommended and can be purchased online through Eventbrite.   Search: “Edible Evening” or go to http://raisingrochester.eventbrite.com?s=28633405  For more information, please call Jennifer - KidzKare at 248-651-8197 x 152.
