The Roast on the River benefiting Daniel’s Grace Press Release.


It’s that time again. The 5th Annual Daniel’s Grace Charitable Fundraiser known as Roast on the River takes place November 4 from noon to 4 p.m. on the manicured grounds of Steinhilber’s Restaurant overlooking the Lynnhaven River.


It’s a really fun day that raises monies for and awareness of a very un-fun disease. Cancer.


Daniel’s Grace was founded to honor Daniel Burns, the late husband of Jodi Newland, owner of Sweetwater Cuisine. From the time Daniel was diagnosed at age 28 until his death at age 32, Daniel’s outlook remained positive due to the generosity and kindness of strangers that sent him checks from all over the United States to help battle his financial hardships. Being on the receiving end of so much grace, made him regret that he was not able to give back.


This is where Newland stepped up and decided to do it for him. It took 10 years of dedication plus countless hours to build her business into one of Virginia Beach’s top-rated catering companies and Sunday brunch destinations. This success allowed her the platform to found Daniel’s Grace in 2014, a non-profit that will carry on his memory to help others in need.


Funds raised go directly to support cancer families with daily living needs so that they can not only survive but thrive. Daniel’s Grace can keep the lights on, gas in the tank, the rent paid or food in the fridge of families to help ease the daily struggle. Last year’s event raised $200,000, a major increase since the first year’s total of $32,000.


Now here’s the fun part. It’s a party folks. Oysters? There will be plenty both raw and roasted. Steiny’s Famous Fried Shrimp with Steiny’s Sauce? Oh yes. Plus, Sweetwater’s signature gourmet mac n’ cheese, honey pecan fried chicken, shrimp and grits, sweet potato biscuits, a mimosa and Bloody Mary bar, a homemade cake and pie competition, children’s activities, a wine pull, a silent auction, a photo booth and lots to do, see, sip and sup. The people you meet here, may become your friends for life.


It’s not too late. You can still be a presenting sponsor for $5000 a Pearl Sponsor for $2500 or a Table Sponsor for $1200. For full details of how this benefits your business, call 757-663-6977. If you’d like to attend this worthwhile event, tickets are available at danielsgrace.org.
