The Bedford Bucappellas will add to the festivities with song and serenading.
Bedford attorney and amateur gastronomist Nat Brown says of the event, “It’s a wonderful opportunity for the Town to get together, and an opportunity to meet the restaurateurs and food service people who work in the area.”
Key sponsor, Brown says he first began supporting Flavors of Bedford more years ago than he can remember. “I felt that it was an opportunity to share with the Town and to help out financially in a community activity,” he says. Brown, who dresses up for the occasion says whether you decide on formal wear or something more casual it’s a great night out and very worth the price of admission.
Director of the Bedford Chamber Maureen Sullivan says “It’s always fun and exciting to see so many people come out to support us, and the food is just amazing. The Chefs really do a great job.”
Flavors of Bedford is a major fundraiser for the Bedford Chamber of Commerce, a group that works to maintain and improve the quality of business and home life in Bedford. A portion of the proceeds for Flavors will go to support Friends of Hanscom, a non-profit supporting the mission of Hanscom AFB, the quality of life of its assigned personnel and their families, as well as the military members in the greater New England region.
