This past Wednesday evening, Chef Jose Garces and his wife Dr. Beatriz Garces hosted a fundraiser for their nonprofit organization, The Garces Family Foundation. The event also honored Dr. Steven Larson of Puentes de Salud. The foundation will build a community center in Philadelphia, which will help the growing immigrant community gain access to health care and education related services.

Chef Garces assembled a super star team of some of Philly's best and most renowned chefs to prepare a five course meal for high rolling donors. We got to take a look behind the scenes and see these talented chefs collaborating.

Tortoise & Blonde is a stylish and affordable eyewear brand out of New York that offers a variety of men’s and women’s prescription glasses and sunglasses. With so many frames and sunglasses retailers online, it can be impossible to pick just one pair, let alone anticipate what they will look like on your face! Tortoise & Blonde's collaboration with Urban Outfitters is a sigh of relief for glasses-wearers in need of a new look who prefer a more hands-on approach. Check out and try on Tortoise & Blonde's frames at their pop-up shop and, better yet, T&B can read the RX out of your current lenses and fill new frames on site! If you can't make it out to Center City on Sunday, they'll be in the area all weekend and are always available online. Cheers to a new you!

A second test post of using blogsubmit to post to Phrequency blogs, This time changing the registration domain on my user record to  let's see if it comes up on the proper blog sections now.  Again, the attached image  is a caipirinha.  It's early in the day, but i could use one now!

I think i figured out the missing ingredient.  The post won't appear on a section front unless the Featured Post category value is set on the post.

Let's see if that works!
