Spirit of Jane Rodney Gala

On May 10, we were once again proud and honored to be the official caterer, and a sponsor, of the Jane Rodney Gala from the Susan G Komen Foundation. And, with over 20 tables to feed, we were thrilled to feed the guests and sponsors of this worth-while charity.

This was the 11th annual event and is sponsored by the Susan G Komen affiliate of Central & South Jersey. This year a new venue was chosen: the historic Trenton War Memorial. The Spirit of Jane Rodney Celebration remembers their late founder, Jane Rodney while honoring community leaders who shared her dedication to the fight against breast cancer.

Jane worked at the Breast Cancer Resource Center and brought the Race for the Cure to New Jersey in 1994. She inspired others to take action and many of their volunteers and supporters worked with Jane for many years. While Jane lost her own battle with breast cancer in 2002, her work lives on.

Here’s what Monica Smith, Director of Development of the Susan G Komen of Central and South Jersey chapter had to say about the event:

Guests walk the “pink” carpet to enter. The event continues with an amazing silent Room Set upauction, great music, and sit down dinner.

Exquisite Caterers was one of the sponsors, along with Bristol-Myers Squibb, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield, Navigant, St. Peter’s Healthcare System. 

Exquisite Caterers has been a sponsor for several years.

Kosher Caterer to the World – Well, the U.N. Anyway!

Image[1]On Monday, April 15th, 2013, we were once again honored to cater at the United Nations. This time for  a Yom Ha’atamaut (Israeli Independence Day) reception at the Ambassador River View Tent, at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City. We were invited by Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations, H.E.  Mr. Ron Prosor, Well, when I say “Invited” I mean “Cater.

Exquisite Kosher Caterers at the United Nations!

Dave at the UN!

Over 500 UN Delegates and members of the NY Israeli and Jewish communities attended.

Exquisite Caterers is the kosher caterer for the United Nations, and we served the entire event – from full appetizers to desserts!

We received many compliments and our Beef Short Rib Spring Roll with Teriyaki BBQ Sauce (yum!!)  was a big hit!

Here’s what the mission said about the event:

220px-Miri_Ben-Ari_with_Violin_47b_[1]Our Mission had a ball last night rocking the UN with Miri Ben-Ari and over 500 UN delegates and members of the New York Israeli and Jewish communities to celebrate Israel’s 65th birthday…(Ms.) Ben-Ari gave a heart-stopping performance. Miri’s music has echoed from some of the world’s most celebrated stages – and last night she added yet another string to her bow as a “cultural ambassador” for the State of Israel.

We think they would have talked more about the food, but their mouths were full!
