CUMAC, in partnership with Ani Ramen, is excited to debut a new fundraiser this year called FLAMES, which will bring together hundreds of people for a night of gourmet food and drink to help fight hunger in New Jersey. The event will be held on Thursday, September 13 at Factory 220 in Passaic, NJ and will feature tastings from several of the Garden State’s top chefs. As our lineup of renowned chefs serve some of their favorite dishes, guests will also enjoy music, delicious drinks, and auctions full of one-of-a-kind prizes and culinary experiences. Packages to be auctioned include a week in Spain, a chef’s table at a premier restaurant, and much more.
The list of chefs for FLAMES includes Chef Anthony Bucco from Felina, Chef Ariane Duarte from Ariane Kitchen & Bar, Chef Mike Carrino from Pig & Prince, Chef Robert Austin Cho from Kimchi Smokehouse, Chef Julian Valencia from Ani Ramen, Chef Adam Rose from Villa Lobos, and Chef Ryan DePersio from Fascino.
The title of the event, FLAMES, was inspired by CUMAC's ambitious goals for the years ahead. Proceeds from the event will be instrumental to igniting our team's big, crazy dreams for the future. FLAMES will be replacing a long-standing annual fundraiser, the HELP Dinner, and marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter for the organization. Join us this September and be a part of our vision for the future.
Tickets are on sale now and all proceeds from the event will support CUMAC’s mission to feed people & change lives!
