Adopt-a-Family Holiday Program

Dates: 10/01/2019 - 12/15/2019

Location: 24 Cherry Street, Johnson City, NY

Would you like to make the Holiday Season a little brighter for a local family in need? 

Consider participating in FEN's Adopt-a-Family Holiday Program!

Each year, FEN matches deserving families enrolled in our programming with local donors who "adopt" the children for the holidays. Families receive no other outside assistance.

Families range in size from 1 child to 10+. Donors receive "wish lists" for each child with age, clothings sizes, favorite colors/characters etc. along with a few wants and needs. There is a $50 minimum per child.

Fill out the Donor Confirmation Form to commit to adopting a family and return to Linda DeMarco at or call (607) 723-8313 ext. 891. 

For more information on how you or your business can adopt a family this Holiday Season contact Linda DeMarco.

Restaurants from across the area will come together to decide once and for all who has the best take on this iconic menu staple. They will compete to win a variety of different categories, the only limit is their creativity.

All that's needed... is YOU. All attendees of the event will get the chance to vote for their favorite restaurant in the categories of favorite classic tender, most creative, and a bunch more! A ticket to the event includes sampling from every single vendor and your chance to vote. Tickets are limited here so grab your tickets online as soon as possible so you can stop by the Broome County Regional Farmers Market building October 18th to see it all go down.
