You can make that happen! The Annual Taste of South Jersey, being held on Monday, November 19, at Adelphia Restaurant and Lounge in Deptford benefits Family Promise of Gloucester County.

Tickets are $45 per person in advance, and $50 at the door. Your ticket allows you to eat all the amazing food prepared by local chefs from appetizers to desserts, and everything in between.

The chairperson of this important fundraiser, Tom Power, says, “We are appreciative for Adelphia’s continued support. This event is a crucial source of funds for our network, and we could not do it without them. We encourage local residents to support Adelphias and all the generous restaurants that donate their service.”

Family Promise of Gloucester County provides food, shelter, supportive services and companionship to children and their families who are experiencing temporary homelessness. With a core of volunteers and staff, they work with the families to solve the issues that put them on the street and help them regain a home and their independence. While in the program, families have an opportunity to save money, learn about managing their finances and get connected with resources throughout the county. Most of the 175 families who have been part of the program since 2005 are thriving in their own housing today.
