Edible Evening 2017

Apr 5, 2017

Our most successful "An Edible Evening" yet!

On March 30, 2017, lead sponsors The Murphy Foundation and Mr. & Mrs. Michael Murphy, more than 40 local restaurants and food businesses, 125 silent auction and raffle donors, 170 volunteers, and nearly 1,000 guests helped to put us well over last year's fundraising mark!
 
Presqu'ile Winery, NOLA Brewing Co., and CureCo. with Distillers DPD Spirits helped make the evening extra special, and we give a hearty shout-out to media sponsor The Advocate New Orleans and music sponsor Positive Vibrations Foundation for helping to make our evening a great success!  
 
Special thanks to our Edible Evening Planning Committee Co-Chairs Michael Murphy, II and Carol Starr, and to the auction co-chairs Christine Carmody and Ann Heslin for all their hard work and great ideas.
 
We're so grateful for everyone who helped us raise $220,000, which represents 20% of needed funds to operate the program across five FirstLine Schools that teaches students to make healthy connections through food.
