Red Bank Flavour Culinary Alliance and Molly Pitcher Inn Announce May Event in Support of Friends of the Monmouth County Parks
More than six months after Hurricane Sandy, the Red Bank Flavour Culinary Alliance and the Molly Pitcher Inn announced a May 23 fundraiser and culinary event, “Party on the Promenade,” in support of the non-profit organization Friends of the Monmouth County Parks.
With the Monmouth County Park System having sustained an estimated $9 million worth of damage from Hurricane Sandy, Red Bank Flavour and the Molly Pitcher Inn are eager to show their support of the non-profit organization through the “Party on the Promenade” event. Friends of the Monmouth County Parks, whose initiatives and goals include the preservation of historical and natural resources, as well as access to recreational opportunities for urban youth and activities for individuals with disabilities within the community, will be in attendance.
In distinct Flavour fashion, Red Bank’s chefs, restaurateurs and proprietors, will welcome culinary enthusiasts and wine aficionados from around the state to sample the town’s unique flavors and finest cocktails, including exclusive offerings from Hendrick’s Gin. In addition to culinary and cocktail tastings, “Party on the Promenade” will take advantage of the Molly Pitcher Inn’s recently expanded promenade to offer live steel drum music and riverfront views. Prize giveaways and dancing will round out the affair.
“For a tight-knit community, Red Bank offers an excellent selection of restaurants, bars, cafes, gourmet shops and bakeries. Visiting gourmands are always pleasantly surprised by the reach of culinary options available,” commented Valerie Aufiero of the Front Street Trattoria. “Party on the Promenade’ will showcase the talents of Red Bank’s culinary community in a gorgeous setting, while giving the community yet another reason to come together to support an important Monmouth County-based, non-profit organization.”
Party on the Promenade will take place from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 23 at the Molly Pitcher Inn and feature samplings from 20 Red Bank eateries. Tickets for the event are $50 in advance and $60 at the door. A portion of proceeds from the event will benefit Monmouth County Friends of the Parks.
