Founded in 2012, the goal of Philanthropic Foodies is simple – to eat, drink, and give back! PhilanthropicFoodies combines a culinary showcase of talented local chefs and products from local purveyors, as well as a silent and live auction, to create a unique fundraising event that benefits multiple nonprofits within the Central New York community.
Philanthropic Foodies was born from the desire of local food enthusiasts to channel something we love to do (eat and drink) into a vehicle to give back to our community. In the past three years, Philanthropic Foodies has donated over $100,000 to five deserving and local organizations: Friends of Dorothy House, The Samaritan Center, On Point for College, Signature Music and CancerConnects. In 2015, we're thrilled to once again honor Friends of Dorothy and welcome Stupid Dumb Breast Cancer and The First Tee Syracuse.
A minimum donation of $100 per person is requested.
Your ticket includes:
- Incredible tastings from the area's premier culinary talents
- Beverage pairings at each station to enjoy a carefully selected beer, wine, or spirit
- Direct access to local food and beverage experts
- Extensive silent & live auctions
- Entertainment by top local musicians; Jimmy & Ashley Cox and Tim Herron
*More than 90 percent of your ticket price goes directly back to our nonprofit organizations.
