Food That Rocks 1

For one night only, more than 25 of the best local restaurants will be rocking the heart of Sandy Springs at the second annual Food That Rocks, and again will benefit three Sandy Springs-based non-profit organizations: Ian’s Friends Foundation, Second Helpings Atlanta and the Georgia Ovarian Cancer Alliance.

Honorary co-chairs of the 2017 event live/work in Sandy Springs and represent each of the non-profit organizations benefiting from this year’s event. Co-chairs include Lauren Toporek Hulsebos, volunteer with Ian’s Friends Foundation, Diane Curtis, Development Coordinator of Second Helpings Atlanta and Caryn Kroll, whose grandmother lost her battle with ovarian cancer, is representing GOCA.

“Last year’s event was a wonderful way for the community to get together and celebrate all the good happening in Sandy Springs,” says Cheryl Yagoda, founder and vice president of Ian’s Friends Foundation. “Food That Rocks was a great way to meet new neighbors, sample the great food in our area, and find out about charities doing amazing work – all in our back yard!”

Set for Saturday, May 6, Food That Rocks, a Celebration of Sandy Springs in Hammond  Park, will feature gourmet bites from Sandy Springs’ best restaurants, wine/beer/cocktail tastes and live music.

Food That Rocks, set for 6:30 to 11 p.m., is for 21 years and older. General admission tickets are $60 at the door. First-taster VIP tickets are $75 at the door.
