About the Event:
The “Toast to Dairy” event includes a showcase of Pennsylvania artisan cheeses, wines and brews, with the Pennsylvania Cheese Guild leading wine and cheese pairings throughout the night. Local artist and dairy supporter Debbie Cornman of Boiling Springs, Pennsylvania will donate her time to do a live art rendering of a local barn scene. The painting will be auctioned during a raffle supporting the Dairy Excellence Foundation.
Dairy enthusiasts and friends are invited to network and enjoy an evening out while supporting and celebrating the Dairy Excellence Foundation’s next-generation resources, which include scholarships, internships and curriculum. Along with enjoying the fun and fellowship, those who attend will have the opportunity to hear from benefactors of Dairy Excellence Foundation programs – students, teachers, and scholarship recipients – who will share their experiences throughout the evening.
This year’s event specifically showcases the foundation’s “Adopt A Cow” Program, which offers classrooms a year-long discovery for students to explore where their food comes from. During the 2018-19 school year, 486 classrooms with more than 25,000 students combined are enrolled in the Adopt A Cow Program. Students and teachers in 38 different states and British Columbia are participating in the program.
