Share Our Strength



Taste of the Nations is coming to Princeton, New Jersey and ChezWhat is going to be there. April 26th is the date to mark on your calendars and to make it even more attractive I have tickets to raffle off so $85 in advance and $95 at the door make this a nice little something that you can have for free.

Since 1988, Taste of the Nation has brought together the most creative culinary minds across the nation. Each spring and summer, pioneers of modern American cuisine, national celebrity chefs and mixologists including David Burke, Stephan Pyles, mixologist Tony Abou-Ganim, Bravo’s Top Chef Tom Collichio, Food Network stars Tyler Florence and Emeril Lagasse and thousands more like them donate their time, talent and passion at nearly 40 events across the United States and Canada with one goal in mind: to raise critical funds needed to help end childhood hunger. 100% of supports Share Our Strength’s efforts to end childhood hunger.

Taste of the Nation’s success is due to the thousands of dedicated volunteers in cities across the United States. These volunteers—chefs, corporate sponsors, marketing and public relations professionals, event planners, financiers and individuals who believe that no child should know hunger-- have helped raised more than $73 million for anti-hunger organizations that run or advocate for programs that connect at-risk families with the food they need to thrive. This year, funds raised through Taste of the Nation will support No Kid Hungry™, Share Our Strength’s campaign to end childhood hunger in America by 2015, as well as selected international efforts. You can get involved here.

I was going to take my son with me so that he can get a feel for his role in living a charitable life but this event is restricted to those aged 21 and older so rather than having only one ticket to raffle off I have two. If you live in the area and you want to attend all you need to do is leave a comment. (You can still leave a comment if you are not in the area and cannot attend) I will conduct two separate drawings using random.org and I will announce the winners on the morning of April 23rd.

What a shame about the age limit, would have been so great to share the event with your son.

I wish I could enter the drawing, but I've got family visiting that weekend and will have to be here in NYC. Good luck to all!

It's too bad you're not going, but how nice of you to offer the tickets to your readers.

I am going - and I have two other tickets - where is the confusion?

Ciao Chow Linda said...

Oh whoops. I misread when you said your son wasn't able to go. I figured you were raffling the two tickets - his and yours. my mistake.
