The Hunterdon Medical Center Auxiliary has created a unique food paradise virtual fundraiser to benefit Hunterdon Hospice and Briteside Adult Day Center and also support local area restaurants.

On Monday, September 21, 2020, from 7:00 to 8:00 pm, A Culinary Affair will go virtual!

The event, A Culinary Affair Goes Virtual, has been reinvented to feature local restaurants in a virtual broadcast as they showcase their famous dishes and tips and cook for or create cocktails for the audience.  Featured in this virtual broadcast will be a series of vignettes and culinary tips. Also featured are wine and cheese pairing tips and a signature cocktail created exclusively for this event
