My job here at Farm Aid sometimes involves planning fantastic parties. Luckily, I had a lot of preparatory work growing up planning Cabbage Patch Kids’ tea parties, so this is second nature to me. My job also requires that I ask people to donate money so that Farm Aid can continue to grow the Good Food Movement so that we all have access to the good food that only family farmers can grow. These two tasks come together in an event that I’m planning here at Farm Aid… an event I like to call “Farm Aid Eve.” The event will be held (you guessed it!) the night before the concert on Friday, September 19th.
I’ve been working with the lovely folks at The Charles Hotel in Cambridge, which will be site for Farm Aid Eve. Events can be a little hectic and stressful, but Jennifer McMahon and Jim Anello are a dream to work with.
Chef Peter Davis (Henrietta’s Table) has created an amazing family farm menu. Chef Jody Adams (Rialto) will also be on hand that evening to lend her talents. Grey Goose, Five Rivers Vineyards, Poland Springs, and the Cambridge Brewing Company are all donating their wonderful products to make sure we have a good time. Will Dailey will be there to entertain us with his wonderful music. Tickets are $100 per person and 100% of the evening’s proceeds will go to work for family farmers.
I hope you will make plans to join us. The festivities start off at 6:30 with cocktails! Click here to register online!
