Join HooplaHa At The Greenwich Food + Wine Fesitval
Well folks, it's that time again. The 2014 Greenwich Food + Wine Festival will take place September 25-27 at the Roger Sherman Baldwin Park in Greenwich, CT.
If you joined us last year, you know what a success it was! HooplaHa will be there again this year. For those of you not familiar, the festival, supported by Serendipity, supports the Paul Newman’s The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp. This is an organization that helps children and their families coping with cancer, sickle cell anemia and other serious illnesses. All proceeds from the festival’s Kick-Off Party, live and silent auctions and direct donations benefit the organization. The event is full of fun including, food tastings, BBQ Pit Demonstrations, Celebrity Book Store, Burger Battle and Concert Stage featuring The Marshal Tucker Band!
The twelve chefs, two pastry chefs and chef restaurateur Jean-Georges Vongerichten will be honored at the event’s Most Innovative Chefs Gala on Friday evening, as they create and serve up dishes of their ingenious foods.
