Main Street thanks community for Downtown’s Cookin’

December 20, 2013

Rehoboth Beach Main Street would like to thank our local community, the Downtown’s Cookin’ Committee, and all the generous sponsors, restaurants and volunteers who contributed to make Downtown’s Cookin’ Community Unity Event a success Dec. 8. Hundreds of people braved poor weather conditions to gather at the Rehoboth Convention Center and feast on local chefs/restaurants’ favorite dishes and desserts while enjoying live musical performances, kids crafts and even a visit from Santa! In addition to food and entertainment, Rehoboth’s 2013 Citizen of the Year Paul Kuhns was honored. Proceeds from this year’s Downtown’s Cookin’ will benefit local families in need with Cape Henlopen Community Caring 2013 and RBMS.
