There’s a really important fundraiser for Chile happening next Tuesday April 6th: ~A TASTE OF CHILE~. It’s being put on by Bay Area Chileans, Presidio Cafe, Chilean Consulate SF, and Chilean Importers. The event will feature various wines from a multitude of Chilean appellations, paired with empanadas from Café Valparaíso of Berkeley, shrimp appetizers and alfajores from Sabores del Sur, and more, plus there will be Chilean-themed music and dance. You can read more details about participants on the event’s Facebook page. The event is being hosted at the Presidio Cafe.
They are asking guests to contribute a minimum of a $25 donation, and those who give $100 or more will be included in a raffle drawing (ten local restaurants are offering dining gift certificates). All proceeds benefit COANIQUEM, a private non-profit burn center foundation that operates three rehab centers in Chile, and whose facilities were greatly compromised by the recent earthquake.
