On May 7th, The Doe Fund hosted our fourth annual sweet: New York event at the fabulous Bowery Hotel in honor of “the men in blue.” Every year The Doe Fund’s own Culinary Arts program caters the hors d’ouevres for the evening. This year we also had the pleasure of being highlighted as a food vendor. Our main course was none other than famous sliders with our one of a kind homemade barbecue sauce. They have been a staple at The Doe Fund for years and our homemade barbecue sauce makes them out of this world! But don’t worry if you didn’t get a chance to attend sweet: New York and try our succulent sliders because we’re hitting the streets and selling them at various street fairs throughout the New York area this summer.
sweet: New York was truly a momentous evening for The Doe Fund’s Culinary Arts team as hundreds of foodies joined together for the tasting event of the year in honor and support of The Doe Fund. The event also featured a silent auction that included what we believe was the best item of all, a private party catered by the one and only William Crafton, The Doe Fund’s catering chef. The event successfully raised over $250,000.
This large level of support is indicative of the universal language of food as a unifying factor that is essential to who we are. George McDonald, the Founder and President of The Doe Fund said it best, “Food is life at The Doe Fund.. so many of the “men in blue” in Ready, Willing & Able choose the culinary arts as their path to better lives because food is such an essential part of who we are. And to see so many talented chefs, food lovers, and celebrities come together to support their journey proves how powerful an idea that really is.”
