Founded in 2012, the goal of Philanthropic Foodies is simple – to eat, drink, and give back! Philanthropic Foodies combines a culinary showcase of talented local chefs and products from local purveyors, as well as a silent and live auction, to create a unique fundraising event that benefits multiple nonprofits within the Central New York community.
Philanthropic Foodies was born from the desire of local food enthusiasts to channel something we love to do (eat and drink) into a vehicle to give back to our community. In the past four years, Philanthropic Foodies has donated over $160,000 to six deserving and local organizations: Friends of Dorothy House, The Samaritan Center, On Point for College, Signature Music, CancerConnects and The First Tee Syracuse.
In celebration of our 5th anniversary, we will be honoring all six past charities! This year’s event will once again showcase the talents of local chefs and products from local purveyors. The goal is simple….Eat, Drink and Give Back!
“It has the appeal of a pop-up dinner, serious chefs and it’s for a good cause…
Philanthropic Foodies seems to be the real deal.” –Syracuse Guru
