Join Cure Restaurant and Bar for Taste of Farmington happening on May 17th from 5:30pm-9:00pm at the Farmington Gardens. Featuring 35 restaurants, farms, pastry shops, breweries, and wine representatives!
ABOUT THE EVENT
Cure Restaurant and Bar aims to raise more than $25,000 to benefit Gifts of Love and Healing Meals Community Project at their 2nd tasting fundraiser. The event will be held at Farmington Gardens in Farmington, CT on May 17th from 5:30pm - 9:00pm. Sponsored in part by Connecticut Distributors Inc., the event will feature 35 restaurants, farms, pastry shops, breweries, and wine representatives from the Farmington Valley area. Each vendor will feature creative food and beverage samples that highlight their programs. Event goers will meet the creative minds behind their favorite local businesses, learn about their stories and taste their unique creations.
As well as a social gathering, the event will prove to be great entertainment with Renee DiNino of iHeart Radio as the host and live music by the Kenny Mehler Band and Jeff Przech. Organizations like Gifts of Love and Healing Meals Community Project offer a wide range of services for people in need who may not qualify for assistance, or for services that don’t even exist through local or state programs. With the help of volunteer “Youth Chefs”, Healing Meals Community Project prepares and delivers 100% organic meals to people in an acute health crisis, including cancer.
