SummerTini Returns June 10th to the Galleria


Save the date on Friday June 10th for the seventh annual ~SUMMERTINI~, a one-of-a-kind food lovers’ party that benefits CHEFS, a culinary training program for homeless adults (and one of my favorite organizations in the city). From 6pm-9pm, you’ll be wining and dining on signature cocktails and specialty food from more than two dozen San Francisco restaurants in the Design Center Galleria in San Francisco, plus there will be music by SF jazz band 8 Legged Monster.

Signature martinis and hors d’oeuvres will come from A16, 4505 Meats, E&O Trading Company, LarkCreekSteak, Millennium, Patxi’s Chicago Pizza, Hayes Street Grill, The Plant Café Organic, ThirstyBear Brewing Co., Yield Wine Bar, Pause Wine Bar, Home of Chicken and Waffles, McQuade’s Celtic Chutneys, Sukhi’s Gourmet Indian Cuisine, and more.

Raffle prizes will be awarded throughout the evening, and the live auction will feature exciting items like a cooking class with chef Martin Yan; a VIP tour of the capitol and lunch with Congresswoman Jackie Speier in Washington, D.C.; tickets to a taping of The View in NYC, and many other special dining, travel, and entertainment opportunities.

SummerTini tickets are $100 and can be purchased online or by calling 415-487-3736. Proceeds benefit CHEFS (Conquering Homelessness through Employment in Food Service)—this unique, 12-month culinary training program provides classroom instruction, hands-on kitchen training in institutional and restaurant settings, and job counseling and placement in the food industry for homeless adults—and the Skills Center, where the students receive additional support with GED preparation, basic literacy, and résumé writing. Both programs are managed by Episcopal Community Services of San Francisco.
