NYPL’s Farm-Themed Family Benefit

The New York Public Library Family Benefit has long been one of AK’s favorite annual events. Each year, the event — which raises funds to support children’s services and programs in its 88 neighborhood libraries — entertains both children and adults with unique, interactive themes. This year’s “Adventures on the Farm” theme included a bluegrass band, live petting zoo, farm craft stations and, of course, our farm-themed food stations. One of the most popular was the “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie…” Station (a play on the popular children’s book) where guests made their own flavored milk bottles and enjoyed animal shaped cookies station and old fashioned miniature pies. “The Good Egg” Station was also a hit, featuring miniature country egg frittatas, deviled eggs, and egg-shaped grilled cheeses. It was a wonderful day of farm and country right in the heart of Midtown Manhattan!
