Savor the Avenue

Delray Beach is home to the much anticipated Savor the Avenue culinary event.  Last year there were 1,001 dining guests and many thousand spectators onlooking from the sidewalks and street.  The event raised $3,110 last year for Healthier Delray Beach and their campaign "Stock Our Schools" .  The Stock Our Schools campaign provides resources for classrooms that support social and emotional health of students.  This year's charity beneficiary is Community Greening.  Community Greening is a collective effort that works with local residents and organizations to improve the environment for people and nature by planting trees and transforming urban green spaces. 

Savor the Avenue, the much anticipated culinary event, is in it's twelfth year.  Savor the
