Good friend of Foodservice Monthly and our restaurant world Mitch Berliner is looking for restaurants to participate in The Capital Area Food Bank's (CAFB) 10th Annual Blue Jeans Ball … their major fundraiser for the year. Mitch is a man of many hats (many of them philanthropic) including the Central Farm Markets and a favorite of charcuterie fans MeatCrafters
Restaurants need to sign up now to take advantage of all the publicity that goes with the participation … there's nothing wrong with a little good news out there about what a giving group of people that restaurateurs and chefs are.
Mitch tells FSM that here's the deal:
10th Annual Blue Jeans Ball
Sunday, March 24, 2013
Marriott Wardman Park Hotel
6pm – 10pm
Now you just bring a dish you want to showcase and the hotel supplies the rest … tables, linens, plates, silverware, etc.
To get on this prestigious list of restaurants you can contact Mitch Berliner directly at 301-440-8496 or email@example.com. For the restaurant sign up:
