The much-anticipated 3rd annual Friends of James Beard Benefit Dinner took place at One Ocean Resort & Spa on September 12th. This year’s fundraiser, Beard on the Beach, featured five prominent area chefs from the picturesque beaches of Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia. Taking advantage of the final harvest of the season, the five-course benefit dinner proceeds contributed to regional scholarships for culinary educations and the James Beard Foundation’s scholarship program.
Over the past three years, One Ocean Resort & Spa has proudly raised more than $22,000 for the James Beard Foundation. This year’s fundraiser proved to be no exception, presenting an elegant night of wining, dining, and celebrating.
