Whether you're into fine food or fresh flowers, you'll find something to stimulate your senses at the "Taste of the Flower Show Preview Party" on Wednesday, Feb. 20 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Rhode Island Convention Center. The event, which benefits the Rhode Island Community Food Bank, offers a sneak preview of the Rhode Island Spring Flower and Garden Show on the night before it opens to the public. Twenty-five culinary establishments will offer tastings, set against the stunning backdrop of the Flower Show.
Tickets for the event cost $75 and can be purchased online at www.rifoodbank.org/TasteoftheFlowershow or by calling 230-1673. CVS/Caremark sponsors the Taste of the Flower Show.
"The Taste of the Flower Show truly is magical, and it's become a tradition for many people who share a love of gardens and fine food," said Food Bank CEO Andrew Schiff. "But the night is much more than that. This important fundraiser helps us care for the most vulnerable members of our community at a time when the need is at its highest level in the state's history."
