They’ve teamed up with Clean Plates to promote healthy, tasty treats. Those treats at the event will have no refined sugars and no corn syrup. There is even a good reason behind all this. A portion of proceeds go to Wellness in Schools, whose mission is to inspire healthy eating, environmental awareness, and fitness in public schools across the country.
Brands such as Brewla Bars, Hint Water, Krumville Bake Shop, SkyIce, Purely Elizabeth, NibMor, The Soft Serve Fruit Co., and Stogo will be there.
They’ll be hour-sessions at the Gallery from 12 to 6 p.m., tickets cost $20 and can be purchased at http://coolstartups.eventbrite.com/.
Aside from indulging in healthy treats, there are also going to be speakers talking about how to launch a startup in the Big Apple and much more.
