A Taste for Art gave each attendee the opportunity to learn more about Children & Families First as we celebrated and honored building thriving communities throughout Delaware together. Whether a long-time supporter, or new to Children & Families First, we welcomed guests and promised they would leave feeling connected, inspired and empowered to join us in our vision of individuals who are valued; families that are strong and self-sufficient.
Our programs support at-risk pregnant mothers with home visiting programs; help families build strong, supportive relationships with parenting classes; encourage teens to overcome obstacles and build self-sufficient futures; connect families with resources to help them sustain and thrive...putting children & families first is not just our name, it's our promise!
One of the most memorable aspects of the evening was the entree and dessert stations hosted by Delaware’s up and coming culinary minds. Striving to be tomorrow’s top chefs, students from local high school hospitality programs were given creative freedom to create an exotic menu exploring the
tastes of California!!
William Penn High School
A Taste for Art features local artists showcasing original pieces in a range of medias; tantalizing culinary stations hosted by aspiring hospitality students; open bar with a variety of wines and custom cocktails; butler passed hors d'oeuvres: and respected corporate, civic and community leaders as it’s honored guests. Held at the renowned Greenville County Club, the evening’s spectacular backdrop includes the garden terrace views and sunsets recognized as the best of Northern Wilmington.
We welcome you to make a difference in the lives of children and families on the path to self-sufficient, flourishing futures by joining us for this unique creative arts and culinary experience because when our children succeed, our whole community benefits!
