Eat.Drink.Read. A Culinary Event to Support Literacy

If you can read this post, then you are fortunate enough to do something that nearly half a million adult San Diegans cannot do: read.

That's why renown local chefs have teamed up with the San Diego Council on Literacy to present a delicious fundraiser called “Eat. Drink. Read." that will be held on Wednesday, April 28th.  

Guests will wine and dine at Sushi Performance and Visual Art Center while socializing with featured guests, Bernard Guillas and Ron Oliver, authors of Flying Pans: Two Chefs, One World and chefs at The Marine Room. Drinks will be provided by Cafe Moto, and appetizers will come from popular San Diego restaurants including Urban Solace, Starlite, Suite and Tender, The Marine Room, Ono Sushi, and Cafe Sevilla. 

Eat. Drink. Read. will begin at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 28th with a silent auction from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $60 and include wine, beer and appetizers. All proceeds will go directly to the San Diego Council on Literacy by funding instructional books needed to train literacy tutors as well as providing children's books for low-income families. In the past year, the San Diego Council on Literacy has been able to serve more than 73,000 adults and children around San Diego County by offering partner literacy programs.

I hope to see you on the 28th!
