Summer Food & Wine Event 5/16/12

How many of you like food?  How many of you like wine?  Now how many of you would like to have both while you help feed local hungry children?  Yup! Exactly!  

South Coast Plaza is throwing a Summer Food & Wine event at Bloomingdale's in South Coast Plaza on Wednesday, May 16th, 2012 from 6 - 9pm.  This special evening will have Chef de Cuisine Saekyong Kim of Charlie Palmer's Bloomingdales, cooking his delicious menu items while partygoers will have the opportunity to sample over 100 wines from the Central Coast and Napa Valley, while music will be provided from KCRW 89.9 DJ Jason Bentley.

All ticket sales and silent auction proceeds benefit the Second Harvest Food Bank, whose services encompass groceries for Seniors, afterschool meals for kids, shelter meals, emergency food, food stamps, and summer meals for children in need.  Second Harvest Food Bank, and particularly our local Orange County Harvesters, have funded 38 Kids Cafe Programs throughout Orange County.  The children that visit these centers often have their school provided free lunch as their only meal for the day, and would remain hungry until the next school day.  The Kids Cafe Program provides afterschool meals for these children who would normally not have access to dinners or meals on weekends. 

Personally, the thought of these children going hungry in our local area is heartbreaking, both as a mother and as a wife of a man who once lived on the streets as a young child.  Please consider offering your time, money, or attending this fun event benefiting our Orange County families and children in need. 

Hope I see you there!
