Area chefs and caterers will be cooking up sweet and savory fare to share at the 11th annual 2016 Foodie, “Savour the Taste, Support the Cause” sponsored by Upper Bucks Chamber of Commerce, the area’s premier professional organization.
This year’s evening at Sands Chrysler Jeep Dodge on Route 309 in Quakertown promises to be a culinary sampling feast, packed with a visual, aromatic and savory adventure.
More than a tasting event (you won’t leave hungry or thirsty), sample the best our region’s restaurants, caterers, bakers, winemakers, brewers and distillers have to offer.
Also on the table is a chance at a raffle basket and a way to support two great leadership causes at the heart of the UBCC’s mission.
Proceeds from the event benefit Pennsylvania Free Enterprise Foundation Week and Leadership Upper Bucks. Pennsylvania Free Enterprise Week gives high school juniors and seniors a unique summer camp experience, in which they get to see what it’s like to be an entrepreneur and run their own business. Closer to home, Leadership Upper Bucks is a program geared toward skill development and practice, where participants have the chance to practice skills they learn on a company project and meet leaders in the public sector and private enterprise.
Be a sponsor, exhibitor, or a patron. All the details are available on our website at www.ubcc.org/foodie.
Calling on Sponsors: this uniquely positioned evening gets your message out to potential buyers in advance and at the event, as well as generates great public relations and networking benefits. Last year, we raised $15,000 for the free enterprise education of tomorrow’s young business leaders, by supporting Pennsylvania Free Enterprise Foundation Week.
Attention Exhibitors: get a chance to showcase your talent and gourmet culinary creations while promoting your business with the best exposure: a patron’s palate. What’s more your business receives publicity before during and after on our social media feeds and website.
Sponsorship and exhibitor deadline is September 23; don’t delay, call 215.536.3211, or sign up online today.
Patrons don’t miss out! From wings to soups, and seasonal beers whose names and flavors are a nod to the region’s local lore to terroir (climate, soil and conditions) Bucks wines and small craft spirits. Cap off the evening with pastry, cupcakes and other dainty sweets. Make sure you get in on the fun, call 215.536.3211 today for your tickets, or order online at www.ubcc.org/foodie before they run out.
