To the editor:

WJFF's Foodstock Fine Food & Wine Festival on Saturday, May 11, was a huge success!

More than 50 vendors set up their booths inside the tennis courts at the Villa Roma and nearly 400 guests walked through the doors, enjoying samples and tastes of all kinds of delicious goodies.

The entire event was made possible thanks to the Villa Roma, to WJFF staff, to an enormous army of dedicated WJFF volunteers and to our Foodstock guests. The event raised $10,000 for our community radio station. Our vendors helped us to reach that total by giving back 10% of what attendees spent on produce and products from local farmers, businesses and artisans.  Foodstock was a good day for a lot of people.  

We deeply appreciate everyone who helped make it happen!
