We invited food and beverage establishments to showcase their culinary delights in a "fair" setting with an all-inclusive price for entry for the public which is $20.00 for all you can eat, live entertainment and silent auction. We collaborate with local farmers and food-related businesses to encourage awareness of local food production. We were successful in raising over $5000 for these 2 charities each year and had lots of fun and introduced amazing locally grown and prepared food. We had approximately 300+ people on site and on surveying these people that attended we realized that this needs to be an annual event.
Each year we would like to raise money for a local charity as well as continue with our global initiative partnering with H.A.V.E. We are presently in search of funds to help off set costs but are prepared to use local resources and "in kind" donations to help run the event. The collaboration between Fuel for Warmth and H.A.V.E. is a great fit. Water, food, shelter, warmth and a healthy lifestyle!
