Celebrated chefs create and prepare a five-course dinner tableside, paired with wine, for individual tables of 10.
All money earned from the decadent sit-down dinner, reception and auction assist FLIPANY with the necessary funds to implement the Cooking Matters Program, in our role as the national Florida partner of Share Our Strength.
FLIPANY COVID-19 Emergency Response
FLIPANY (Florida Introduces Physical Activity and Nutrition to Youth), is a South Florida nonprofit whose mission is to foster healthy lives through nutrition education, physical activities, and wellness initiatives. The number of children and families in need of our services has surged during COVID-19. During April and May, FLIPANY distributed over 650,000 meals to children at over 70 distribution sites—more than a 330% increase from the same time last year. Camp closures during the summer and the possible delay of schools opening in the fall put children at risk of going without meals. As unemployment rates continue to hang heavy, parents are torn between feeding their own families and keeping the lights on. Together, we can be the force that changes this. This project does not only benefit 6,500 children who receive meals each day but also supports small businesses currently out of work due to school closures such as food service (caterers) and childcare staff. We are calling on you to contribute to our COVID-19 Emergency Fund with a silent auction donation. With a goal of raising $350,000 between various revenue streams, FLIPANY will continue to provide meals in South Florida to children and their families. These funds are critical to ensure our services operate through August.
