Once Labor Day hits, fall benefit season begins! On Friday, I guest posted over at Clue Into Cleveland with my recap of the 15th Annual Taste of the Browns. The non-profit I work for is deep in the planning process for several functions, and more events keep popping up on my radar screen… such as the upcoming Taste of Little Italy:
The 16th annual Taste of Little Italy will take place on Sunday, September 22nd (THIS SUNDAY) from 2PM to 6PM at - where else?! - Cleveland’s Little Italy neighborhood, specifically the Churchyard at Holy Rosary Church.
From the event website:
While you enjoy your evening out in the fresh air with good food, good wine, and good friends, know that you are supporting the outstanding educational experience offered by the Cleveland Montessori School (formerly the Montessori School of Holy Rosary). This non-profit Pre-K to 8th grade school is dedicated to developing children’s emerging potential according to the principles of Dr. Maria Montessori, an Italian physician and child advocate. Proceeds benefit the school scholarship fund and capital improvements.
More than 40 restaurants and bakeries will participate, including (just to name a few):
- Bruno’s Restaurant & Catering
- Corbo’s Bakery
- La Campagna
- La Dolce Vita
- Mama Roberto’s
- Maxi’s Bistro
- Murray Hill Market
- Paragon Wines + Martinis+ Plates
- Presti’s Bakery
- Sidari’s Italian Foods
- Sweetie Fry
There will be NO shortage of food, that’s for sure. Throw in wine tastings from more than 200 wine distributors, a silent auction and live entertainment… this sounds like the perfect Sunday Funday activity.
You can purchase tickets at the event website, by calling 216-421-0700 or at Little Italy Wines. Tickets are $70 in advance, or $75 if you purchase at the door; or you can buy ten tickets for a total of $650. Group sales FTW!
