Wish Farms Hosts 2nd Annual Bright House Networks Strawberry Picking Challenge
PLANT CITY, FL - While the groundhog seems to think we’ll have 6 more weeks of winter, this weekend with Wish Farms may feel like spring is already upon us. Hosting Bright House Networks’ second annual Strawberry Picking Challenge, the farm company promises meals, music, and (of course) strawberry picking.
“By bringing this event to the farm, we hope to bring awareness and education to the hard work of our farm workers, while also making it a family-friendly event,” Gary Wishnatzki, Owner of Wish Farms, said.
The event benefits Redlands Christian Migrant Association, a nonprofit organization located in Florida, provides early education and care for children of migrant farm workers and rural low-income families. Last year it was able to donate almost $75,000 to the cause.
According to a press release, the event will kick-off this Friday night, Feb. 6, with a more adult-centric evening of dinner, drinks, and a silent auction to benefit TPepin Hospitality Centre located in Tampa, FL. Then Saturday, Feb. 7 starting at 11 a.m., the family fun begins.
Enjoy some fresh strawberry shortcake, refreshments, and from 12:30 to 2:00 p.m. listen to live country music performed by the locally popular Clemens Road Band. Watch as corporate teams compete for title of “Best Harvest Crew,” and enjoy some time with the kids.
Located at Futch Farms, 3536 Futch Loop, Plant City, FL 33566, general admission is free while parking and kids meals are $5, and adult meals are $10. All proceeds go to the RCMA, so have fun knowing that it all goes toward a good cause.
