Philly! Phoodies! Philanthropy! Food for Thought 2016 was a great success thanks to the genersous support of our sponsors, guests, committee members, donors, featured chefs and restaurants, board members, staff and volunteers. Taking place on Saturday, April 9th at Urban Outfitters, Inc. at The Navy Yard, the event raised more than $250,000 in gross revenue with all proceeds supporting ACHIEVEability's self-sufficiency programs. It was a particularly special celebration this year which highlighted ACHIEVEability's 35th Anniversary.
Over 600 friends including Mayor Jim Kenney and Councilman Curtis Jones, Jr. came together for an amazing evening of sumptuous food provided by 25 top chefs and restaurants and heaps of FUN - with a live and silent auction, incredible music by the American Deluxe Band and numerous games and photo opportunities.
