Forks & Corks, Harvesters largest food-focused fundraiser, celebrates its 21st birthday on Thursday, April 27, from 6:30 to 9 pm, and they would like to invite you to help them eat, drink and feed many.
Held each year at downtown at the Grand Ballroom inside of the Kansas City Convention Center, Forks & Corks guests will be able to sample gourmet food along with wine, beer and cocktails provided by over 50 of Kansas City’s finest local restaurants and beverage producers, all to help feed the hungry in Kansas City.
At Forks & Corks, 100% of the ticket sales goes directly to Harvesters, and this event alone, raises enough money to serve over 1 million meals to the hungry in Kansas City.
“Forks & Corks is a wonderful event showcasing some of the city’s finest culinary talent all in support of our mission of feeding hungry families, children and seniors in our community,” said Valerie Nicholson-Watson, President and CEO of Harvesters. “We are grateful to our partners in the restaurant and beverage industries who lend their time and talents to make this event possible.”
Chef Megan Garrelts of Blustem and Rye will be the honorary chair of the event this year. Every year the Forks & Corks committee looks to add new and exciting restaurants and beverage producers into the mix, and this year was no different.
“This year, our focus was on securing as many local food and beverage businesses as possible,” says Julia Hansen, Special Events Manager for Harvesters. “I’m particularly excited about our first-time participants this year.”
