About Evening of Fine Food:

For 28 years, QCP’s Evening of Fine Food event has provided an informal networking setting for people from the Queens Business community to socialize as they sample gourmet delicacies provided by dozens of Queens’ restaurants and chefs. Each year, this annual event benefits the individuals QCP supports at our Adult Centers, Children’s Center and in our Residential programs. 

At this event, we have many Queens eateries in attendance and we pay tribute to “Chefs of the Year” – individuals who are recognized for their ongoing support, dedication and service to the communities in which they live and work, and support QCP’s mission to provide person-centered services and supports to children and adults who have developmental disabilities.

Queens Centers for Progress has provided programs and services to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities for nearly 75 years. From providing educational and therapeutic services to a small group of children, QCP has grown to become a major provider of services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Queens County and the New York metropolitan area.
Funds raised from this special event enable us to continue to do what we do best – promote independence and provide the people whom we serve with the resources they need to live their best lives!
