I was fortunate enough to be raised by a family of warm, generous people that believe in giving back to their community and supporting charitable causes. So when I get an opportunity to do my part, I jump on it!

An upscale consignment shop in Whippany partnered with the American Heart Association to hold a fundraiser luncheon in early December. The shop was generous enough to donate 30% of all of their sales that day to the cause. I wanted to keep people on their feet and engaged in shopping, so I filled the menu with plenty of easy grab and go finger foods.

At the head of the table, a four tier veggie tower stood tall. It featured fresh, organic veggie sampler cups filled with hummus and ranch dressing for dipping. There were plenty of sea salted tortilla chips with an assortment of dips including a 7 layer taco style dip, avocado and corn salsa dip, and a creamy spinach dip served in a freshly baked artisan bread bowl. We served fresh mozzarella, tomato, and herb infused olive oil skewers, and mini buffalo chicken Reuben’s topped with sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, and Russian dressing. We also did a platter of delicious grilled zucchini rolls filled with goat cheese and drizzled with balsamic reduction. Overall the event was a huge success, we cleared out lots of old inventory for the store, and collected plenty of money for charity.
