Attend an Event

The Sylvia Center teaches vibrant young people the fundamentals of cooking to unleash their potential.

Attending an event is one of the most fun ways you can give. Each year, we hold two major fundraising events—the Farm Dinner in the fields of Katchkie Farm and the Art of Cooking gala in New York City. Attending events are an opportunity to celebrate our students and supporters while growing future programs.

Join us at an event to get involved today!
