CUMAC 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 exclusive 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 an extraordinary auction full of exclusive prizes and culinary experiences. Packages to be auctioned include a chef’s table at a premier restaurant, a week in Spain, 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 Adam Rose from Villa Lobos, and Chef Ryan Depersio from Fascino & Kitchen Step.
The title of the event was inspired by our staff’s ambitious goals for the years ahead. Proceeds from FLAMES will be instrumental to igniting CUMAC’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!
Tickets for FLAMES go on sale Thursday, July 12 and all proceeds from the event will support CUMAC’s mission to feed people & change lives. Stay tuned for more updates!
