Napa Food and Wine Event to Raise Money to End Childhood Hunger
On Wednesday, July 18th, some of Napa Valley’s top chefs and restaurants will gather for Share Our Strength’s Taste of the Nation Napa Valley. The event, sponsored by American Express, will raise funds for Share Our Strength’s fight to end childhood hunger across America.
The festivities will begin at noon with a golf tournament at Silverado Country Club, followed by a tasting and live auction from 5:30 to 8:30 pm. There will be more than 30 restaurants and wineries participating, hosted by Silverado Resort Chef Peter Pahk.
Restaurants and wineries slated for the event include; Brix, Martini House, Meadowood, Ritz-Carlton San Francisco, Cole’s Chop House, Carneros Inn, Google Café 150, Cakebread, Chalk Hill, Joseph Phelps, Domaine Chandon, Faust, Robert Mondavi Winery, Franciscan, Simi Winery, The Hess Collection and more.
All of the proceeds from the ticket sales and auction will go directly to the fight to end childhood hunger, a serious problem in California and across the nation. Chef Peter Pahk said, “We are excited to launch a new food and wine event with Share Our Strength in Napa Valley that directly benefits families in our communities … This is a great way for us to do our part to end childhood hunger in the Napa Valley and across the country.”
The Taste of the Nation event is the largest culinary benefit supporting the fight to end childhood hunger in America. There is not a more fitting way for the food industry to give back to the community then to use their talents to raise money for people who are underprivileged and underrepresented.
Founder and executive director of Share our Strength Bill Shore recently noted, “An end to childhood hunger in our country is within reach … With all the participants in Taste of the Nation Napa Valley and wine country sharing their strengths, we are creating more resources for the greater good of Napa Valley and our great nation.”
Tickets are still on sale for the event; it costs $200 for the golf tournament and tasting, and $100 for just the tasting. To purchase, call (877) 26-TASTE of click here.
