Coming up: Foodscapes, fundraisers and craft beer

Club hosting food contests

The General Federation of Women's Clubs' St. Petersburg Woman's Club will present two foodscape competitions, a business category open to chefs, caterers, food service professionals and supermarkets from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on July 19, and an individual/family competition from 1 to 5 p.m. on July 20. Foodscapes are "landscapes made completely from food, mostly vegetables," according to event planners, and must fit atop a card table between 32 and 36 square inches. The event is to raise nutrition awareness; proceeds benefit the Mr. Strong Foundation, which helps special-needs families. The events will take place in the clubhouse at 40 Snell Isle Blvd. NE. $3 adults; free for children 12 and younger. Email [email protected]; (727) 822-4982.

The annual St. Pete Times Social Calendar returns in September, meaning submissions are due by July 31. Please send details of parties and charity benefits, including the sponsoring organization, date, time, venue (with street address), admission price and publishable contact information, to Mary Jane Park at [email protected] (subject line: SOCIAL CALENDAR) or Tampa Bay Times, P.O. Box 1121, St. Petersburg, FL 33731.
