The family behind Harlem’s Sylvia’s Restaurant serves up education through annual fundraiser


The family behind Harlem’s famous Sylvia’s Restaurant are very well-known for serving up delicious fried chicken or mac and cheese, however did you know they are known for something entirely different and it’s not on the menu? It’s called education. In 2001, the family behind Sylvia’s Restaurant started the Sylvia & Herbert Woods Endowment Scholarship Fundraiser and to date, it has sent more than 60 students from the area to college. The Woods created this Fundraiser in 2001 and are having it on October 28th at the City College of New York City.

If you would like to participate or attend the Fundraiser, contact Crizette Woods at cwoods@sylviasrestaurant.com. The rate sheet for the Fundraiser is also shown below.
