Taste of Promise

March 17, 2017

WHAT

Join UrbanPromise for South Jersey's premier food and wine charity event, a showcase for the area’s most distinct restaurants and caterers. The evening will include a sumptuous sampling of fare prepared by local chefs; wine and beer from around the region and the world; live and silent auctions featuring incredible sports and travel; live music; and a beer garden — all hosted at the beautiful Moorestown Community House. VIP ticket holders will enjoy a private half-hour preview starting at 6PM and will also have access to fine wines.  Proceeds will fund jobs for Camden teens in UrbanPromise programs throughout the city.

Online ticket and raffle sales have ended.  Tickets will be available to purchase at the door.  



WHY

Minority youth in poor urban areas currently face a 95% jobless rate. We believe every teen who desires to work should have the opportunity! This past year UrbanPromise hired 104 teens through our StreetLeader Program. As StreetLeaders, teens are paid to serve as camp counselors in UrbanPromise’s AfterSchool Programs and Summer Camps where they receive hands-on job training, and in many cases, first-time job experience. UrbanPromise’s close mentorship of teens throughout their employment makes this one of our most impactful programs. Over the past four years, 100% of StreetLeader seniors have graduated from high school and over 90% have gone on to college.
