Taster's Showcase offers culinary delights
Prepare your taste buds for a unique and beneficial dining experience with Kidango's 16th Annual Taster's Showcase. The fundraiser combines incredible food with the opportunity to support the vital programs of Kidango, a nonprofit child development agency with 41 centers throughout Alameda and Santa Clara Counties which provide care, education, and support services for kids and families.
Whether your tastes run toward Italy or Mexico, vegetarian entrees, fine wines or delicious deserts, Taster's Showcase has you covered with over 25 vendors offering up their best. This year's participants include BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse, Extreme Pizza, Papillon, Spin-A-Yarn Restaurant, Trader Joe's, Super Suppers, Gelato Classico, Federicos Tapas and Wine Bar, Chouinard Vineyards, JD LaVie! Specialty Wines,Vida y Vino Wine Bistro, and Westover Vineyards Winery.
Professional chef, caterer and culinary educator Mary Chamberlin heads a panel of expert judges that will award honors in 12 food categories, and a people's choice award will be given to the best red and white wine.
In addition to the tantalizing selection of great local food, attendees will receive an event wine glass and be entered into a raffle for 12 dining certificates for two. There will also be the excitement of live and silent auctions featuring items such as themed gift baskets and gift cards, theatre and sporting event tickets, a cabin stay in Tahoe, and a yacht package.
Perk up your Sunday afternoon with Taster's Showcase and enjoy a bounty of culinary delights while helping to give kids a strong foundation for a successful future.
