Charity Event in November
As part of the Camerons’ mission to support the Edgewater community, the restaurant will host a benefit for Care for Real during the exhibition on November 14, 3:00-6:00 p.m. The afternoon will feature a raffle for artwork, a painting demonstration by Steve Puttrich, music by the Mark Cleveland Band, plus a signature cocktail and hors d’oeuvres. The agency, which is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary this year, provides a food pantry, clothes, pet pantry, and support services for Edgewater residents. Guests are asked to bring a donation of personal care products.
