Food Bank of Delaware’s Halloween Blue Jean Ball to be held October 24

Halloween_vintage2 [Converted]The Food Bank of Delaware is transforming its Newark warehouse into a haunted house for its annual signature event on Saturday, October 24 from 6:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

Presented by Iron Hill Brewery and Restaurant, the evening will feature a fall seasonal small plate menu prepared by Iron Hill’s team of chefs and students from The Culinary School at the Food Bank of Delaware. Guests will enjoy pork tenderloin crostini with roasted apple chutney, braised lamb and marsala mushrooms, sweet potato latkes, salmon, beef tenderloin, duck ragout pasta and more. Dessert for the evening will be provided by the UDairy Creamery.

Iron Hill’s team of chefs will assist students from The Culinary School with kitchen prep and cooking, organizing food stations and executing plate presentation on the night of the event.

“Partnering with Iron Hill Brewery and Restaurant is a wonderful opportunity, not only for our culinary students who get to work alongside their chefs, but for our event attendees who have the opportunity to enjoy both their brews and fine seasonal foods,” said Food Bank of Delaware President and CEO Patricia Beebe

“Our Blue Jean Ball continues to evolve, and over the past several years, we have realized that our guests love dressing the part for this annual event. We thought it was only fitting to host a Halloween-themed event. You can count on us to throw a scary good time!”

A costume contest will take place with prizes being awarded to the top three costumes. For guests who prefer not to come in costume, blue jeans are acceptable at this casual fundraiser. Tickets are just $75/person and include unlimited beer from Iron Hill Brewery and Restaurant, wines, a fall seasonal small plate menu, entertainment from Mike Hines and The Look and a raffle.

The Blue Jean Ball is held each year to raise awareness of the acute problem of hunger in Delaware and the important role the food bank plays in combating hunger, as well as its root cause – poverty. By utilizing the warehouse space and the culinary skills of Iron Hill Brewery and Restaurant and students from The Culinary School, the Food Bank of Delaware is able to significantly reduce costs. Last year, close to 90 percent of event proceeds went directly back to the organization’s hunger-relief efforts.

Tickets are available for $75/person or $750/table of ten and may be purchased by calling (302) 444-8074 or by visiting www.fbdbluejeanball.org.
