On Sunday, Aug. 7, Taste of the Nation Utah, a benefit for Share Our Strength, will take place at Solitude Mountain Resort, raising critical funds needed to support efforts to end childhood hunger in Utah and across the nation. There is still time to get in on the fun, food, and camaraderie, all for a very important cause.
More than 40 of Utah’s best restaurants and chefs will be represented, including the always-popular Baker’s Dozen, which features more than 15 pastry chefs’ sweet creations. In addition to food, a variety of wines will be provided, generously supplied by Phoenix Wine & Spirits, Southern Odom Spirits West and Young’s Market.
Taste of the Nation also includes a silent auction, live music and a live auction, which I will emcee. Live auction items this year include a Stein Eriksen Lodge getaway package, in-home wine dinners from Goldener Hirsch Inn, Fresco and the Copper Onion, and wine education classes for two, courtesy of Jimmy Santangelo.
The event takes place from 11:30 a.m.-4 p.m., and ticket prices are $75 per person for advance general admission ($90 at the door), $125 for advance VIP tickets with reserved seating and $1,200 for a group VIP table for 10 people. All ticket proceeds are donated to anti-hunger organizations, including Utahns Against Hunger. To purchase advance tickets, click here.
