Tickets are now on sale for the fourth edition of Food That Rocks: A Celebration of Sandy Springs, set to return to the City Green at City Springs on June 8. The event is a celebration of the community’s bustling dining scene.
“Just as the city’s dining scene has grown over the past several years, Food That Rocks has quickly become a much-anticipated event where food lovers can mix, mingle, nosh and schmooze,” said Sandy Springs Mayor Rusty Paul.
Bringing together both community and entertainment for a cause, this year’s expanded footprint features an evening of more than 25 of the area’s best chefs and cocktails, plus live music from The Biffs and DJ Jimmy, supporting Sandy Springs-based charities Community Assistance Center, Ian’s Friends Foundation and Second Helpings Atlanta.
“Through Food That Rocks, we’re shining a spotlight on the Sandy Springs area and its evolving, diverse collection of chefs and restaurants,” said Dale DeSena, who is queen of food festivals as CEO of Taste of Atlanta and founder of this event. “The evening is a celebration of local food, live music and the community.”
Among the first-time participants are Jewish chef and owner Bruce and Scott Bogartz of Bogartz Food Artz.
