Taste of The Nation - Salt Lake City

I have been posting this message on every other site that I am a member of and even though I am sure that all of my reader's have kicked me to the curb by now, I thought that I would put it up here too.

I don't now how many of you are familiar with Taste of The Nation but this is an event held every August (this is the tenth year anniversary) at Snowbird resort. The event benefits Share our Strength, an organization with sole purpose of ensuring that no child in America grows up hungry.

The event is held in cities all across the country and this year, Salt Lake's is August 2nd. This is a great day out of good food from chefs in the Salt Lake area, as well as great wines and beer. I am letting you all know for several reasons. First, tickets are on sale at All proceeds from the tickets go to the charity, so it is a write off - yay!- and one ticket is good for the whole day, meaning unlimited food and drink. So at a minimum I encourage everyone to go. Beautiful weather, great scenery, wonderful food, its a good time.

Secondly, I am looking for sponsors and donations for the silent auction. Unfortunately, as is so often the case with charities, we are cutting it close on both. All of these need to be in place by the 20th of this month, for the sake of printing. Sponsorships start as low as $250 and can be customized to fit your needs. Silent auction items can be goods or services, and are a great way to get a little advertisement for your business as well as help a good cause.

Please contact me if you are interested in participating as a sponsor or a donor. Also, please feel free to forward this on to anyone else who you think would be interested.
