There are two fundraisers coming up on Saturday, August 4th and they both look delicious. One helps raise money for the restoration and preservation of the Delaware Canal, and the other supports the Heritage Conservancy which protects wildlife habitats and farmland in Bucks County. Both feature some of the area’s best chefs and promise a fine summer evening. It’s a hard choice.
Faces and Places: Erwinna Walls begins with a guided walking tour of the town of Erwinna in Upper Bucks, and then ends at the tented ruins at Erwinna Walls, a Bucks County property near the Covered Bridge. At the event, the Golden Pheasant Inn will be previewing bites from their new menu (for more about the Golden Pheasant Inn see our post) and Eat This! will be providing dessert. The walking tour starts at 5 pm followed by a wine garden, dinner, jazz and an auction. Tickets are $150 per individual (it’s for a good cause!). Tickets can be purchased here by July 25. Friends of the Delaware Canal is an independent, not-for-profit organization working to restore, preserve and improve the Delaware Canal and its surroundings. Last year’s event was sold out, so make sure you reserve your places early. For additional information: Call 215-862-2021 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Heritage Conservancy will be hosting its 4th Annual Farm to Table Dinner on August 4th also, beginning at 6 pm. This event offers the unique opportunity for guests to enjoy delicious, locally sourced food while also experiencing the beauty of nature on a preserved property, the Lindsay Farm in Warwick. Proceeds benefit land preservation efforts, including farmland, in Bucks County. The event offers a farm-fresh meal, prepared by two great Bucks County chefs – David Zuckerman of Earl’s Bucks County and Luke Smithson of Jamie Hollander Gourmet Foods and Catering. Hors d’oeuvres, followed by a buffet-style meal, will be served in a rustic and picturesque outdoor setting. This event also sells out each year! Tickets are $75 per person.
