Together for One Night

image

This past weekend was quite busy and eventful! I got to attend and volunteer at the Brews, Bites and Wines Charity Tasting Event held by The Promise Society, whose mission is to host events to help raise money and awareness for other non-profit organizations. I recently heard about this organization through a friend and had an interest to learn more about it. I’m really glad I did!

Here’s a picture of the staff and founder of the Rescuing Leftover Cuisine!

At this event, the Society raised funds for an organization called Rescuing Leftover Cuisine, whose mission is to redefine food rescue and end food waste in the U.S.  Did you know that food is the #1 material sent to landfills?? Find out more how this organization helps reduce this problem and how you can contribute or donate here at their site.  

While I took care of registration at the event (Oh the silly joy I got through meeting new people and telling them what their wonderful tickets entitled them to!), I also had a chance in between the hours to meet the vendors and taste some of the yummy work they make. Many of them have either been around for quite some time or are just coming out with their unique products and don’t have a store yet. More importantly, most of the vendors I met were ecstatic about being there and being part of a good cause! Here were a few photos of the night, photographed by my husband.

Starting with Christina Seid from the Chinatown Ice Factory and Maggie Yeoh from Tasty Theater … Christina even brought her two new friends from Build-A-Bear Workshop to celebrate the night!

And a few others! There are so many incredible charities and non-profit organizations out there – I’m glad I found one that helps others like them. Looking forward to many more good causes!
