Diabetes “Tastings and Tapas” May 8th Fundraising Event

- A night of fine wines, food and desserts May 8 from 6-10 pm to benefit the Diabetes Foundation, Inc. is seeking interested North Jersey restaurants and gourmet dessert and chocolate shops to participate, said the foundation’s assistant executive director.

“This is an opportunity for about a dozen fine restaurants and a few gourmet dessert emporiums in our area to make a difference in the lives of people struggling with diabetes,” said Joanne Bartosik, assistant executive director, Diabetes Foundation Inc., of Paramus.


She said the evening of “Tastings and Tapas,” for approximately 300 attendees will be held at Jack Daniels Porsche’s showroom in Upper Saddle River. The event is open to the public. Restaurants who would like to hear more about how to participate, and promotional opportunities should call Bartosik of the foundation at 201-444-0337 or 800-633-3160.

In addition, the event will feature displays of area artists, live music, and silent and live auctions of art, liquors, trips, and other valuable items. Area artists and businesses interested in donating art, or auction items, should contact DFI.

Bartosik said that Stew Leonard’s Wines & Spirits has volunteered to provide the wine, beer, scotch and soda “tastings” at the event. The foundation wants to feature small food samplings or “tapas” from fine area restaurants and specialty shops, including fine chocolates and desserts, from area gourmet shops wishing to share their delicious confections.

Bartosik said that decisions on participating restaurants and gourmet shops should be finalized by April 1 and urges interested restaurateurs and owners to contact her or the foundation. Corporate and individual event sponsorships are available, and the foundation is seeking items for the auctions. Tickets are $100 in advance, $125 at the door.
