We are thrilled to announce that Sean and Chris will be chairing the Food Bank for Westchester's 24th Annual "An Evening in Good Taste" event for the second time. This year's event will be held Thursday, October 16, at 1133 Westchester Avenue in White Plains. With the goal of ending childhood hunger in Westchester County, this is the Food Bank's largest annual fundraiser featuring delicious food from 30 of Westchester's finest chefs, assistance from 100 volunteers and attracts 600-700 guests.   


We are committed to helping the Food Bank for Westchester raise awareness of this issue and you can get involved as well. Consider sponsoring the event - there are a number of different opportunities that will be available at varying levels.  And we also have a great silent auction - so contributions to that are welcome as well.  Or just buy a ticket and come to the party!  For more information on how you can get involved contact Caitlin@murphybrothers.com.
