Letter: Woohoo! Culinary Delights!

On behalf of the Glen Cove Chamber of Commerce, we wish to express our most sincere gratitude to the 50 (!) exceptional restaurants, caterers, bakers, specialty gourmets, wineries, beer distributors and themed vendors who so generously served fine fare to a full swarm of hungry and eager guests at the 14th annual Culinary Delights on Thursday, April 28th at member business Brookville Country Club.  All of you seriously outdid yourselves this year and brought our famous event to new culinary heights!  The participants, along with other merchants and individuals, also graciously donated tons of raffle gifts, making up 46 attractive raffle baskets, which Liliana Aparicio from Glen Cove Florist once again wrapped so beautifully.  Our heartfelt thanks goes to all those who donated raffle prizes.

On a musical note, we’d like to thank pianist extraordinaire Carol Goglia of Musical Adventures for volunteering her talent for our added enjoyment all through the evening!

We extend an extra thank you hug to celebrity Chef Marc Anthony Bynum who generously gave of his time and talents during Culinary Delights to offer trade secrets and encouragement to amateurs and other professional chefs.  We especially appreciated Chef Bynum’s magnificent silent auction prize which gave a major boost to our revenue.  The funds generated by this event are used toward the Chamber’s Future Business Leaders Scholarship.

In addition, we thank the community, in general, for attending in such large numbers and supporting our famous event year after year!  We certainly look forward to exceeding your expectations again next year!  I think you’ll need to start working up your appetite NOW!
