City Harvest’s young professionals group, Generation Harvest, will host its eleventh annual Summer in the City restaurant tasting and cocktail party on Wednesday, June 20th. The VIP Hour will begin at 6:30 p.m. and the tasting & silent auction will take place
from 7:30 p.m. - 10:00 p.m.
Summer in the City provides guests with the opportunity to see some of the city’s newest culinary stars in action. It is Generation Harvest’s biggest fundraising event of the year and is attended by New York City’s young philanthropists and tastemakers. Last year’s event featured a musical performance by Savoir Adore and attracted over 600 guests, raising $270,000 to support City Harvest’s work feeding New York’s hungry. Summer in the City will be a success in 2012 thanks in part to Infiniti, the official automobile sponsor, and all other event sponsors including AriZona Beverages, Empire Merchants, Nespresso, Valiant, and Vegware.
Ticket prices range from $150 - $250 and ticket packages from $5,000 - $15,000. For more information, please call Lauren Coticchio at 917-351-8716, email [email protected], or visit www.cityharvest.org.

About City Harvest
Now serving New York City for 30 years, City Harvest (www.CityHarvest.org) is the world's first food rescue organization, dedicated to feeding the city's hungry men, women, and children. This year, City Harvest will collect more than 38 million pounds of excess food from all segments of the food industry, including restaurants, grocers, corporate cafeterias, manufacturers, and farms. This food is then delivered free of charge to some 600 community food programs throughout New York City using a fleet of trucks and bikes. City Harvest helps feed the more than one million New Yorkers that face hunger each year.
