Foundation to host annual 'Taste of Ferndale'


On Feb. 21 the Ferndale Community Foundation will host its annual "Taste of Ferndale" at Boogie Fever, from 6 - 9 p.m. 22901 Woodward Ave. More than fifteen restaurants will participate in the city's strolling dinner event held annually on "Mardi Gras." Tickets for the benefit are $32 and support the Ferndale Community Foundation.

The concept of the Mardi Gras-themed fundraiser is to showcase some of Ferndale's most popular and diverse restaurants in one location, allowing attendees to sample selections from each venue.

"There are restaurants of many types and styles in Ferndale, and this event allows folks to sample all kinds of great fare from a variety of these popular destinations," said Dan Martin, newly elected Ferndale Councilman and past foundation chair.

"This is one of the most popular events in Ferndale now," said Greg Pawlica, the foundation's chair. "Holding it this year at Boogie Fever with live music by the Metro Jazz Voices will allow it to continue to grow," he added.

The event will also feature a silent auction and a giving tree. An afterglow party will be held at Howe's Bayou, 22848 Woodward Ave., beginning at 9 p.m.

The Ferndale Community Foundation promotes and funds a variety of programs and organizations in the area of education, health, youth programming, and public art within the city. It has enabled groups to develop and complete projects that enrich the lives of area residents. Over the past eight years the foundation has contributed over $40,000 to projects including FernCare Free Medical Clinic and Ferndale Youth Assistance.
