NORTHEAST OHIO FOOD & WINE EVENT ALERT: If you’ve been craving the chance to stroll, snack and sip around our area, you are in luck as I’ll be bringing you info about three solid non-profit fundraisers coming up all within in a five day span at the end of this month/beginning of next. First up, the Veggie U Food and Wine Celebration 2016 to benefit Veggie U:
Support Veggie U’s Classroom Garden education programs and join the non-profit on Saturday, April 30th for an evening of delicious cuisine, unique wine selections and fun entertainment including music from Tony Quarles and The Discovery Band, a wine pull and silent auction. Serious though: with this culinary line up, how can a Cleveland foodie go wrong?
Most importantly (even above our love of incredible food and beverage), proceeds will help Veggie U reach its goals of providing “great food and great fun for our guests, but to also make sure the Veggie U story is told” as shared by Nadia Clifford, Veggie U’s Executive Director. For example, did you know that Veggie U Classroom Gardens grow in every Cleveland Metropolitan and Akron Public elementary school, as well as schools across the country? It’s incredible just how far one organization can reach.
The event runs 7:00 PM – 11:00 PM at The 925 Building (AKA the old Huntington Bank building) at 925 Euclid Avenue in downtown Cleveland. Tickets are $100 per person and includes all of the mentioned above plus valet parking. Tickets can be purchased online at this Eventbrite site or by calling (440) 774-8344.
