CHARLESTON – A Charleston-based catering company and food truck held its first-ever fundraising event last week to honor Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month.

Owners and head chefs of FoodArt Catering, Bryce Gussin and Richard Joo, partnered with the French restaurant AZUR to host the fundraiser in its private event space.

Attendees shared their personal connections to MS while eating gourmet small-bites, drinking and listening to live a Brazilian musician, Duda Lucena.
