One of the Bay Area's coolest non-profits, Meals on Wheels, is known for delivering food to homebound seniors, and is holding their 19th annual ~STAR CHEFS AND VINTNERS GALA~ on Sunday, May 21, 2006. (Last year they delivered over 640,000 meals.) The event starts with champers, wine, and hors d' oeuvres from over 13 restaurants, and guests are then seated in a grand tent at Piers 30 and 32 for a special three-course dinner prepared by 24 chefs from the Bay Area. Restaurants include A16, Ame, Americano, Boulevard, The Dining Room at The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco, and Rubicon. Celebrated vintners include Paradigm, Rombauer, Grgich Hills Cellar, and Viader. There is a live auction over dinner, and then dessert and dancing afterwards. All proceeds benefit Meals On Wheels.
Here's how you can help if you can't afford to attend: you can volunteer. They need help with everything from event organization to staffing on the night of the event. Opportunities will include guest registration, staffing the silent and live auctions, and pouring dessert wines. If you are interested in volunteering, please send an email and they will give you the scoop on how to register for the Gala volunteer spots!
