Canby Young Life Fundraiser
Filberts Farmhouse Kitchen made its public debut this last weekend! We participated in a tasting event benefiting Canby Young Life. Young Life is a faith based youth group that does great things for Middle and High School aged kids. The event was held at Willamette Country club in the main ball room and an estimated 150 parents and community leaders were in attendance. Their goal was to raise $40k at this event to support their organization throughout the year.
We served our Corn Bread with Honey Butter and Bacon Marmalade, NW Apple and Filbert Crumble and our Oregon Pear and Chicken salad. Response from the crowd was phenomenal. Several came back for seconds of their favorite and even more stopped by afterwards to say how delicious it all was and how impressed they were. Hats off to the Chefs, we know these items will be features on the menu.
The only thing more impressive than the food was the excitement about the restaurant from the attendees. Attendees repeatedly mentioned how badly the Canby and Aurora communities need a restaurant like Filberts. Many mentioned that they have been following our construction and are eagerly awaiting our opening.
We have a little less than a month until our November 23rd opening date and still lots of work to do. Thank you to our entire team their hard work and dedication to this project. It’s been a big team effort and we are thrilled to see it all coming together!
