Tallahassee, FL - It was the Children's Home Society's annual spring fundraiser Sunday night, The Chef's Sampler. "It's all a donation to Children's Home Society to make this event happen and so it all goes back to the kids in some sort of way," said Sarah Dittman, Children's Home Society.
The organization is the oldest and largest statewide group that devotes itself to helping and serving more than 4,000 children and families.
Folks payed $50.00 to get sample foods from all different types of restaurants in town.
"Food's from the Fisherman's Wife and so on and so on. I mean a gamet of food that you're looking for you'll find it here," said Dittman.
On the menu for Cabos Island Bar and Grill was their famous crab cakes. They've been a participating since the beginning which was 29 years ago. They said there's no plans of stopping the tradition.
"It's part of our civic duty, this is one of the big fundraisers a year. We're big fans of CHS and the work that they do and it's a great way for us to get out," said Bobby Staerker, Cabos owner.
Folks who indulged in food couldn't agree more.
"Impressed, there's a bunch of restaurants and things that you know I was unfamiliar with," said George Brophy.
"The food is wonderful. I came it's a great cause, I'm supporting the Children's Home Society," said Chandra Hayes.
Children's Home Society expected more than 2,000 people to attend.
