1st course ... green salad with salmon croquette; 2nd course ...egg salad, quiche lorraine, & a vegan blt; 3rd course ... scones with clotted jam; dessert course: tea biscuits, cupcakes, and fruit.

Following our tea service, our Princesses selected their prom dresses & treated us to an impromptu fashion show! Styled by Andres, of Bites by Andres, the entire event was truly inspirational! Thank you to our donors, guests, and volunteers as we could not have done this without you!
Hosted by Good Morning America Anchor T.J. Holmes, our 2018 Soiree Fundraiser was simply amazing. We presented our very first "APFAD serve.inspire.change. Award" to the phenomenal Dr. Nadia Lopez. As our guests arrived at Loft 29 in New York City, they were greeted by the smooth sounds of the super talented saxophonist Kayada Morris. Guests also enjoyed complimentary glasses of Jeunesse Cabernet, courtesy of Fahris Glispy of the Phoenix Identity Group. Music was provided by the one and only DJ Crick and it was rocking!
Delicious bites created by Chef Shoshanna included a starter beet, cucumber, orange and apple salad. Savory jerk chicken tostones, salmon crostinis, purple potato wedges with white bean hummus and avocado mousse. And for sweets guests were treated to strawberry shortcake crumble, pumpkin cheesecake, and s'mores bread pudding. These wonderful memories were captured by Alisa of Metal Eye Photography. Enjoy.
