Our next gala is already in the works! And you won’t want to miss it: We are combining our beloved gala with our 5F event, which was a big hit this past spring! Be on the lookout for more details as the 5F Gala approaches.
5F – Forty Food Fellas Foundation Fundraiser held April 28, 2018: Local fellas of the community came together to cook up their best dish for us! Celebrity chefs included CEO’s, police chiefs, fire chiefs, physicians, and more! Attendees perused the booths, sampled the duo’s fare, and ultimately voted for the top duo. It was a night of fun, fellowship, and fundraising for our hospital facilities.
And now, we are giving YOU access to some of their recipes! Did you taste something that was so amazing you wanted to make it yourself? Here’s your opportunity. Flip through our cookbook for recipes, pictures, and a special cameo shot of one of our Foundation board members. Bon Appetit!
