Fun, Funky, Fabulous Menu That You Can Enjoy Too

Every so often we are involved with clients and organizations who really partner with us to create fabulous events. They trust us to write special menus for them, and even to do the decor. That is the case with our good customer, Catholic Charities of the North Shore.
This year they are celebrating their 90th anniversary, on Thursday May 6, so we created an entire floor of food stations and passed hors d'oeuvres themed around the major changes in those past 90 years of food. This event is open to anyone who wishes to buy a ticket, so if you enjoy unique events, and are a bit of a foodie, this might be just the event for you.
You can eat and drink deliciously, and support the good works of this worthy organization here on the North Shore of Massachusetts.
Here is the full menu, and the link to buy tickets is located at the end of this article.
I hope to see you here.
