Harvest Festival & Music Benefit

Dear Friends

Please join us in September for an event in warmer weather than the usual January deep freeze!  No need to wear your hiking boots or put on your cold weather gear.  Just bring something to sit on and be ready to relax and enjoy awesome music in beautiful Basking Ridge!

For the second year, Cam and I are excited about the opportunity to participate in a great event to benefit The Community Soup Kitchen of Morristown and Coupons for the Community

HarvestFestival2014The Harvest Festival will include incredible music, free ice cream and outside time with friends and family!

There is no cost, although we are hoping you will bring canned goods or other non-perishable food items that we can share with the 2 organizations that are hosting the evening.

Last year our local Crane Farm on South Maple Avenue, donated a large amount of fresh produce from their garden to share with the Community Soup Kitchen.  Also, a big thanks to Oak Street School who donated fresh vegetables from the school’s garden for the Soup Kitchen as well!

Please see the attached flier for specific needs from The Community Soup Kitchen.

In addition to supporting a worthy cause, we expect this to be a really fun party and we hope you will reserve this evening on your calendar. Bring a fold up chair or blanket to sit on while enjoying the music. You can buy food from one of the local restaurants or bring your own picnic!

We look forward to seeing you in downtown Basking Ridge on the porch at Ridge Family Dentistry on Saturday Sept 20 at 5:30pm!
