You know how we like to eat and drink. And to do so for a good cause? Hey, Bucks County Taste is there!
I’ve noticed that many fundraising events these days involve tasting food from local restaurants, wineries and caterers. What a great idea. Non-profits get to raise some money, local chefs and food/wine establishments get to strut their stuff, and we all get to eat.
Three such events are going on this week. See if you can swing by at least one. They all benefit great causes.
This Thursday evening, the Women in Business Committee of the Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce is once again hosting the Gourmet Getaway, with over twenty restaurants, bakers, caterers and wineries participating.The event takes place at Keenan Motors on 4311 Swamp Road in Doylestown, in the 2nd floor showroom, from 5:30 – 8:00 pm, on Thursday, March 25. Tickets are: $45 Public/$40 Chamber Members. There will be a silent auction, raffle and prizes, and live entertainment by Courtney Colletti. For more info or to purchase tickets, call 215.348.3913. All proceeds benefit the Women in Business Scholarship Fund.
To truly celebrate the end of winter and the beginning of spring, why not go to the 5th Annual Cabin Fever Feast? This evening, benefiting the Bucks County Audubon Society at Honey Hollow in New Hope, will also feature samplings from many of the best local restaurants, wineries, breweries and dessert shops. Who will be there? Jim Hamilton from Hamilton’s Grill Room, The Black Bass, Hotel du Village, Earl’s Bucks County, Town Crier Bakery, and many more. Live music and a silent and live auction will also be part of the event. Tickets are $75.00 pp. To purchase, call 215.297.5880 or visit www.bcas.org.
And, finally, you can have your cake…and ice cream too.
