Taste of the Nation is a premier culinary benefit where the nation’s hottest chefs and mixologists donate their time, talent and passion to raise money for Share Our Strength, an organization with a goal to end childhood hunger in America by 2015.
If you want to get involved to support this cause (AND enjoy an over-the-top amazing evening), Montage Laguna Beach is partnering with Share our Strength to host the second annual Taste of the Nation on Sunday, June 3rd, 2012 at their gorgeous waterfront property.
100% of the ticket sales from this event will be donated to locally benefit Share Our Strength as well as three location organizations working to end hunger in Orange County.
Here’s what’s in store for attendees of this delightful charity event:
Seven celebrity chefs are coming together to prepare farm-to-table delicacies and guests will enjoy an afternoon of delectable dishes, wine, signature cocktails, live music and of course, the picturesque ocean views.
