Root Division: TASTE 2009

Root Division is hosting ~TASTE 2009~, an evening celebrating the beauty of art and food in San Francisco. TASTE 2009 will feature local chefs and over 15 visual artists for a night of food, drink, music, and art. Proceeds benefit local emerging artists, as well as Root Division’s free after-school art classes for Bay Area youth.
Other offerings at the event include a silent auction of gift certificates from over 30 Bay Area restaurants, spas, salons, and other venues and small artworks by local emerging artists. Guests will also have the opportunity to win the raffled Wine Chest, a collection of over 50 bottles of one-of-a-kind artist-decorated and collector’s choice wines. Wine Chest raffle tickets are $40/each or $75 for two tickets.

A limited number of VIP tickets will be available, with early access to appetizers, artwork, and specialty cocktails, plus a special cooking demonstration and tasting. VIPs also get a limited-edition screen-printed tote from Rickshaw Bagworks filled with goodies and gifts from various venues around town.
