Your Support Impacts the Educational Programming at NYK…

Join New York Kitchen for a night of food, drinks and camaraderie!  Proceeds from this event support our educational programs throughout the year.  Since inception, New York Kitchen has hosted hands-on cooking, craft beverage pairing classes and youth cooking camps in celebration of New York’s incredible agriculture, beverage and culinary industries.

 

New York Kitchen is a 501(c)(3) non profit partner to New York’s farmers, wineries, breweries, distilleries, artisans and entrepreneurs.  We’re a one of a kind place that’s fresh and fun for people who share our love for the state and the high-quality bounty it has to offer.

 

The evening will start out with drinks and hors d’oeuvres inside New York Kitchen with action stations throughout the building.  Then head out to the Grand Tent for a delicious, locally sourced and seasonally fresh “farm-to-table” dinner.  During dinner you’ll hear from some of our biggest supporters and youth impacted by our programming.  There will also be a live auction, cash call and special announcements throughout the event.

 

All proceeds raised between sponsorships, ticket sales and cash call directly go back into the educational programming run at NYK!  It’s proud supporters like you that help us reach more people each and every year – THANK YOU!

Our Goal is $300,000.00! Helps Us Get There!
