CULINARY FIGURES UNITE FOR HURRICANE RELIEF

 

On Sunday, September 24, 2017, New York City’s food and beverage communities will unite on behalf of those hurt most by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. The fundraising event, “NYC LOVES TX & FL,” has been organized by Journalist Jenny Adams, Speed Rack Co-Founder and Bartender Lynnette Marrero, and Alba Huerta, Owner/Operator of Julep in Houston, TX.

This ticketed, multi-room tasting event will feature pop-up-styled experiences of the city’s most illustrious bartenders and leading chefs serving their signature cocktails and small bites. In addition, there will be a silent auction of items ranging from rare spirit collections, kayak trips, cocktail crawls, helicopter excursions and even four-day vacations, with all proceeds also benefitting the foundation. The event will be held at Pier A Harbor House, which is generously donating its space.

 

 

Every cent raised at this event will be given to The John Besh Foundation, a 501(c)(3)  established in the wake of Hurricane Katrina to provide crisis relief after storms, as well as scholarships and financial aid. The John Besh Foundation is already on the ground in Texas and Florida, working tirelessly to clear debris, salvage and rebuild homes, while providing chef-worthy meals to those in dire need.
