This Thursday March 24th is the third annual ~MERCEDEZ-BENZ SIP & SAVOR EVENT~, where talented San Francisco chefs and exceptional, award-winning wineries come together to support the thousands of local San Francisco families served by the Mission YMCA.

From 6pm to 9pm, you’ll be savoring the the cuisine of CHAYA Brasserie San Francisco and chef Srijith Gopinathan of Campton Place, plus small bites from TCHO, Just Desserts, Whole Foods, Boccalone, Cheese Plus, and La Boulange Café and Bakery. And you’ll be sipping exceptional wines from participating wineries, including Arnot Roberts, Realm, Ladera Vineyards, Von Strasser, Yates Family Winery, JAX Vineyards, Rocca, Bohème Wines, Clouds Rest Vineyard, Palmaz Vineyards, Demuth-Kemos, Ehlers Estate Winery, Page Wine Cellars, Porter Family Vineyards, Ramey Wine Cellars, Rombauer Vineyards, Tofanelli Family Winery, Via Pacifica, Roessler Cellars, and Yorba Wines. A silent auction will also take place throughout the night.

General tickets are $80 per person; VIP tickets are $140 per person, and include a special etched glass that allows access to reserved wines, as well as an event gift bag.

All proceeds benefit the Mission YMCA, which works with more than 3,000 local families to provide quality before- and after-school care, healthy and safe youth and teen enrichment programs, summer camps, and social and recreational opportunities for older adults. The YMCA is continually working to strengthen vital community resources since 1953.
