We are excited for the event’s much anticipated return to the Queens community for its 26th year! Evening of Fine Food is a well-attended business networking event that attracts the top restaurants and chefs in our neighborhoods and benefits the more than 1,200 individuals we serve,in-person and remotely, at our Adult and Children Centers in Jamaica and Bellerose, Queens.
For more than 25 years, QCP’s Evening of Fine Food event has provided an informal networking setting for people from the Queens Business community to socialize as they sampled gourmet delicacies provided by dozens of Queens’ restaurants and chefs. Each year, this annual event benefits the individuals QCP supports, in-person and remotely, at our Adult and Children Centers and enables us to continue to do what we do best – promote independence and provide our participants with the resources they need to live their best lives!
As we continue to navigate and adapt through these ever-changing times, QCP continues to make the safety and health of our guests and supporters a priority. This year’s event will be hybrid with enjoyable programming both online and in-person! We plan to continue providing our guests with an exciting, enjoyable, and interactive experience that they have grown to love over the last two decades.
