City Harvest’s young professionals group, Generation Harvest, will host its tenth annual Summer in the City restaurant tasting and cocktail party at the Metropolitan Pavilion (125 West 18th Street, New York, NY) on Tuesday, June 21st. 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 the event attracted over 450 guests and raised nearly $200,000 in support of City Harvest and its programs. This year, Summer in the City will feature a musical performance by Savoir Adore.
Ticket prices range from $150 - $250 and ticket packages from $2,500 - $10,000. For more information, please call Lauren Coticchio at 917-351-8716, email [email protected], or visit www.cityharvest.org.
