NEPC dinner dance set for Feb. 3

The New England Produce Council's annual dinner dance gala is set for Saturday evening, Feb. 3, 2018, at the World Trade Center/Seaport Hotel in Boston.NEPC-logo

The Magical Garden Dinner Dance will begin with cocktails at 6 p.m., followed by dinner at 7 p.m.

Last year's gala drew about 230 people, and "we're looking to have a similar attendance" at the upcoming event, NEPC Executive Director Laura Sullivan told The Produce News Friday, Nov. 10.

An important part of last year's dinner dance was the Sock Drive to collect socks for those in need, when the council partnered with Friends of Boston Homeless. That proved extremely successful, with more than 600 pairs of socks for men, women and children donated.

Sullivan is optimistic for equally successful results this coming February. "A lot of people think of donating coats during the cold winter months," and coats are obviously very important to those in need, she noted. "But sometimes a warm pair of socks is really what they need."
