WPCNR MAIN STREET JOURNAL.From the Woman’s Club of White Plains Foundation. August 31, 2015:
On Friday September 18, 2015 the Woman’s Club of White Plains Foundation will hold its annual fall fund raiser CORKS & FORKS at the CV Rich Mansion in White Plains. This popular event is fast becoming one of the premier “food” events in Westchester.
The event features tastings of signature dishes from many local restaurants as well as wines and beer from area merchants. This year’s specialties will range from appetizers to main courses to desserts and will feature a wide range of cuisines including American, Asian, Indian and Portuguese.
As in past years, proceeds from the event will benefit a local charity and this year’s beneficiary will be EL CENTRO HISPANO. El Centro Hispano has been an integral part of White Plains for over 41 years assisting the Hispanic community in their integration into American culture.
Isabel E. Villar, (left)founder and Executive Director of EL CENTRO HISPANO stated the organization was “honored to be considered as this year’s recipient and is pleased that additional funding will be available to help with the many valuable programs the center has to offer. ” She is with Maryann Martin, Woman’s Club of White Plains Event Chair
Last year’s event was a complete sell out and tickets are going quickly. Reserved and open seating are available and there will be a silent auction and raffle the night of the event. Tickets can be purchased on the website www.womansclubofwhiteplains.org.
