Wine from Rose Bank will be served, as well as beer from the new Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company, which just recently began distributing beer from its Croydon location.
Between 15 and 20 restaurants and caterers will be there to participate in the food tasting, said Kellyann Zuzulo, a PTA member who is helping to organize the event. The list includes Colonial Farms Catering, , , , , Joey G’s Gourmet Deli and Catering, Just Food, La Nuova Vita, , , , and .
There will also be a silent auction and a 50/50 raffle with a variety of prizes.
