“I am so grateful to the Delray Beach recovery community, which has been instrumental in my own recovery,” Bob Higginbotham says, this year’s Honorary Chair, along with Christopher and Joan Finley serving as event Co-Chairs. “I’m honored and humbled to serve as the Honorary Chair for this event and can only hope that by sharing my story, I can inspire others to seek recovery.”

A “People’s Choice” Award will be given to Best Bite with a prize of $1,500. A Critic’s Choice competition will include first and second prizes of $2,500 and $1,000.

“At $50 a ticket, this culinary festival is well priced for an evening to sample fare from our finest area restaurants,” Tony Allerton says, Executive Director of The Crossroads Club.
