Save the Date: Summertini CHEFS Benefit June 7th
By: Marcia Gagliardi
Going to be in town June 7th? Then get ready to enjoy some fabulous food for a fabulous cause at the ninth annual Summertini bash, which is shaping up to be the best one yet. The party is happening Friday June 7th at the Bently Reserve. This year, the restaurant lineup is just amazing! It includes A16, Nopa, Absinthe, Perbacco, and Il Cane Rosso, plus cocktails from Comstock Saloon, Elixir, Hakkasan, and Rye.
The whole evening is a benefit for CHEFS, the wonderful local program that fights poverty and homelessness through job training and placement in the food industry. The evening will be lots of fun, not least because yours truly, the tablehopper, will be the evening’s MC, and you know I’ll keep you laughing and carrying on. Plus, there will be plenty of wine, lots of tasty food, and silent and live auction items with some great prizes, like a Santa Cruz travel adventure with dinner at Manresa, or an overnight stay at Meadowood with dinner. Yeah, fancy.
The evening runs from 6pm–9:30pm, and tickets are $130 for general admission, $200 for Honorary Committee. See you there!
Bently Reserve, 301 Battery St. at Sacramento, 415-487-3300 ext. 1244.
