Party with a Purpose (April 14, 2018) canceled due to inclement weather: We believe it is best to CANCEL "Party with a Purpose."  We are heartbroken to do so, but our number one concern is safety.  Who would have thought when we planned our first SPRING event that a major snowstorm would be a factor? The Food Building is an amazing partner. We are looking for a new date this summer. In the meantime, requested refunds will be issued. Stay warm and safe this weekend.
