Don’t Miss: Taste Of The Flower Show Fundraiser Feb. 20

Friday, February 15, 2013

 

Get a sneak peek at this year's Flower Show and indulge in food from 25 local purveyors at Taste of the Flower Show, a benefit for RI Food Bank.

Whether you’re into fine food, fresh flowers (or both), you’ll find something to stimulate your senses at the Taste of the Flower Show Preview Party on Wednesday, February 20, from 6 to 8 pm at the Rhode Island Convention Center.

The event, which benefits the Rhode Island Community Food Bank, offers a sneak preview of the Rhode Island Spring Flower & Garden Show on the night before it opens to the public. Twenty-five culinary establishments will offer tastings, set against the stunning backdrop of the Flower Show.

Proceeds from Taste of the Flower Show will help the Food Bank provide food to the 66,000 Rhode Islanders who currently rely on food pantries to meet their basic food needs. One in three persons served by the Food Bank’s statewide network of agencies is a child under the age of 18.

“The Taste of the Flower Show truly is magical, and it’s become a tradition for many people who share a love of gardens and fine food,” says Food Bank CEO Andrew Schiff. “But the night is much more than that. This important fundraiser helps us care for the most vulnerable members of our community at a time when the need is at its highest level in the state’s history.”

The details

Tickets for the event cost $75 and can be purchased online at www.rifoodbank.org/TasteoftheFlowershow or by calling 401-230-1673. Taste of the Flower Show is sponsored by CVS/Caremark and participating vendors include:
