Thank you to all our patrons who participated in the 1st annual AquaCurean Celebration.  Details on AquaCurean 2015 will be posted as they become available.  A very special thanks to our Sponsors, Volunteers and the students from Culinard, the Culinary Institute of Virginia College for all their contributions in making our inaugural 2014 Celebration a great success.

AquaCurean is a gourmet seafood, spirits and music celebration, that took place at the Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa, April 25 - 27, 2014.

 

As the name of the event “AquaCurean” implies water and epicurean, the event will showcase some of best seafood and hand-crafted spirits from Savannah and around the country. The AquaCurean Challenge includes a seafood recipe competition and a hand-crafted cocktail competition.

 

The mission of this event is to create a community event that draws participation from the local and national stages. Moreover, its goal is to raise money for children’s charities here in Savannah.

 

The Savannah Harbor Foundation makes a commitment to bettering our community and those who live within it. The commitment is funded by events like this and attendees who share the vision for engaged and uplifted neighborhoods.
