taste of brooklyn and all that jazz

The Taste of Brooklyn and All that Jazz will take place on Saturday, February 7th from 7:00-10:00pm.  The event is once again being held at Ridge Manor Party Center.  All net proceeds benefit the Brooklyn Chambe of Commerce's Scholarship and Education Fund.   This is the Chamber's 9th year hosting the event!  

Because of the proceeds made in 2014, we were able to award three $1,000 scholarships to Brooklyn and Old Brooklyn residents who will be attending an accredited college or university and $1,500 worth of grants to Brooklyn City Schools.  We are hoping to do the same in 2015. 

Taste of Brooklyn features a “taste” of cuisine from local restaurants and establishments.  The Brooklyn High School Jazz Band entertains all of those in attendance.  The cost is $20 and includes food, beer, wine, and entertainment.  This year, we wil also be selling raffle tickets for a chance to win gift baskets and 50/50 tickets!

If you would like more information or if you are able to donate food, a gift basket, purchase tickets, etc., please contact Valerie Thompson at or 216-288-5484.
