On a beautiful crisp March evening, well-dressed men and women gathered to Philadelphia’s Loews Hotel to celebrate and raise funds for The Garces Foundation Benefit. All of Chef Jose Garces’ famed restaurants and other local dining venues convened to raise money towards the continuous of the prestigious program.
Decked out in cocktail attire, attendees were welcomed to table upon table of delicious cuisine. With one ticket, you can try scrumptious highlights from all the best restaurants in Philadelphia.
Do you appreciate cocktails made from local spirits? The night’s benefit was the best place to find elixirs to appease the beer fanatics, gin enthusiasts, whiskey fiends, and vodka zealots.
Now that you dined on the savory, it’s time to check out the sweet. Although the savory outnumbered the sweet, it was only the best desserts in the spotlight this night. Still, there’s no such thing as too many sweets.
Have you ever donated and wondered if what you contributed actually helped anyone? What might be overlooked can actually be an improvement to someone’s life.
The Garces Foundation encompasses several community and humanity works that helps individuals improve their lives. The gesture of improving the lives of others to help everyone around them further enhances the world around us.
The Garces Foundation focuses on Community Health Days, Luna Farm Trips for school children, and a Learning Annex, and also collaborating to other area charities. The best part of helping is seeing your contribution enhance our community.
