Philly-4-NOLA Benefit Shrimp Boil At Greensgrow Farm To Include Meme's Fried Chicken

Sunday, August 29 from 4 - 8 pm at Greensgrow Farm.

London Grill is providing the slaw.
Philadelphia Brewing Co. is providing the beer.
Meme is providing the fried chicken.
And Greensgrow is boiling the shrimp.

$25 a head.

The event is to benefit the Brandhurst Family.

Background from the organizer, Chef Corbin Evans.
"As a New Orleans resident from 1999 to 2008 I feel obliged to honor the hard work of all the people involved in the rebuilding and re-creation of New Orleans. This year on the 4th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina we will be holding a community shrimp boil and fundraiser for The Brandhurst Family.

I have been lucky enough to know Ray and Kay from years of shopping/volunteering and even heading the board of directors at the Crescent City Farmers Market.

I journeyed with them and the White Boot Brigade to the San Francisco area to raise awareness of the plight of the Gulf Coast and the amazing, hard-working men and women who shrimp for a living.

After hearing of Ray's recent health issues and knowing the hardship this family has already endured after the storms I wanted to put together an event that was up to New Orleans standards.
Check the Greensgrow website for more info in the coming days.
