Tampa's Table To Farm Benefit Postponed

Sunrise Community of Hillsborough's Table to Farm Fundraiser scheduled for Sunday, January 29, 2017 has been postponed due to unforeseen circumstance. While it is not the blizzard of 1977, this weekend Tampa is expecting rain, wind and temperatures dropping into the 50's. To ensure a better outdoor dining experience, the event will be re-scheduled for April or May in coordination with The Craft Bar Kitchen and Old Micky's Farm.
