So aside from the fact that it's delicious, why add garlic to your dishes? "Research shows that garlic is responsible for lipid-lowering, anti-blood coagulation, anti-hypertension, anti-cancer, antioxidant and anti-microbial effects,"
The Webster Garlic Festival Association is a joint effort of the Webster Rotary, Lions and Kiwanis Clubs, which was formed to raise funds for various worthwhile community organizations in the Webster, NY community. This under-taking has required the commitment and dedication of
the WGFA board members, the supporting civic organizations and their volunteers for several years. This commitment was in addition to the efforts of each board member the member’s businesses activities, families and other club functions. After many attempts to recruit individuals to assist in the organization and execution of the festival, the WGFA board has determined that there was inadequate support to insure the successful operation of this festival. As such, the WGFA board has decided to suspend the 2018 Webster Garlic Festival.
We sincerely thank all our sponsors, donors, volunteers, vendors and especially the members of the community that attended the festival, for their support and participation. We believe that we made a difference for the groups that we supported with our net proceeds over last three years.
The Webster Garlic Festival Association has raised nearly $ 50,000 that was donated to the following organizations:
-The Challenger Miracle field
-Hope House Ministries
-Beep Baseball (Rochester Pioneers Blind Baseball Team)
-The Webster Community Chest
Thanks again for your support and understanding.
