Capital District Community Gardens’ 24th Annual Spring Brunch

One of my fave local organizations, the Capital District Community Gardens, is having their 24th annual spring brunch. It’s a nice fundraiser for them, and seeing as how I plan on getting a plot with them this year, I think it sounds like a fun event to attend. Check out the info below:

More than 100 local restaurants will prepare and donate dishes for Capital District Community Gardens’ 24th Annual Spring Brunch, which attracts more than 500 attendees and raises more than $50,000.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to bid on more than 200 items donated by local companies and individuals through a silent auction that includes overnight getaways, dining certificates, handcrafted gifts, gardening items and art.

Advance tickets to the brunch are $20.00 for adults and $5.00 for children less than 10 years old; tickets purchased at the door will be $25.00. For more information, or to purchase tickets, visit http://www.cdcg.org or call 518-274-8685.

    This is a really good annual event. While you are eating an unbelievable variety of great food, you are also supporting the Capital District Community Gardens. I encourage folks to attend and also to become members of this organization.
