8th Annual Virtual Garden Party

August 18, 2020 | 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Join NYK for our 8th Annual Virtual Garden Party!

As you know, New York Kitchen is a non-profit organization with a mission to educate, engage and excite guests in a celebration of the incredible agriculture, craft beverage and culinary bounty of New York State.  Each year we offer programming which highlights the industries tied to our mission in efforts to promote their products and the importance of supporting local businesses/producers.  At the heart of our mission are the youth cooking camps we run each Summer at no cost to the following organizations: Boys & Girls Club of Rochester, Boys & Girls Club of Geneva, 4H Camp Bristol Hills, Champion Academy, Education Success Foundation and the Explorers Club of America.  In order to operate our extensive programming and to further our reach, we heavily rely on ticket sales, sponsorships and donations.

With so much uncertainty this school year, we have set up a Covid-19 Junior Chef Camp Fund through our online auction and donations. Our goal is to continue to engage local youth and civic organizations beyond our existing summer and holiday camps and workshops. With the money raised through this fund, we will be able to offer year-round cooking workshops in partnership with after school programs – Free of charge! Please click on the link below to donate and help us reach our goal of $100,000!
