544 Reasons to Celebrate

25 May

Just one week ago, my good friend Mckenzie and I threw ‘Brooklyn’s Largest Potluck’ party on a rooftop in Prospect Heights. There we gathered friends, coworkers, and a whole bunch of food in the name of charity; more specifically, we gathered for God’s Love We Deliver. With the help of our generous raffle prize donors and sponsors, we were able to raise $544 that day.

You can read McKenzie’s recap on her blog, The MMMGuide; she’s got the rundown of all the delicious food people managed to make and bring, conquering the weather and horrendous MTA weekend service. Thank you all who made it out and helped us raise money for such an amazing cause!

Brooklyn’s Largest Potluck for God’s Love

11 May

This Saturday May 14th, I’ll be joining forces with my good friend Mckenzie from the MMMGuide.com to throw one of Brooklyn’s Largest Potluck parties!

The event will raise money for God’s Love We Deliver, an organization founded over 25 years ago when one woman began delivering food on her bicycle to a man dying from AIDS, and which now cooks 3,600 meals each weekday, delivering them to clients living with life-altering illnesses throughout the Tri-State area.

This Saturday, we’ll be serving up some delicious main dishes of our own on a rooftop in Prospect Heights and asking our guests to bring a side dish, dessert, or beverage of their liking for everyone to share, as well as a $15 donation. Everyone will receive a raffle ticket which will enter them for a chance to win one of many fantastic prizes donated by and for some of our favorite NYC locals like The Meatball Shop, Living Free NYC, iCi Restaurant, and more! Additional tickets can be purchased, with 100% of the proceeds from the entire event going directly to God’s Love We Deliver.
