Taste of Sacramento 2012: 14th Annual Easter Seals Event Info

If you enjoy going to Costco and eating their sample foods and drinks, then you may also enjoy the 14th Annual Taste of Sacramento 2012 event scheduled on Friday, September 21, 2012 at the Sacramento Convention Center (1400 J St.) from 5:30 to 9:00pm.

The Taste of Sacramento 2012 event organizers are the Easter Seals Superior California non-profit organization. They work with businesses in the community to help thousands of children and adults with disabilities in Northern California to lead more independent lives. Money raised from the event, will help a child learn to walk in Easter Seals’ Pediatric Programs, will ease the suffering of a Senior with arthritis in Easter Seals’ warm water pool and will help provide work opportunities for adults with disabilities.

Last year, Easter Seals raised over $147,000 from the Taste of Sacramento. About 2,850 people attended the event. And unlike going to Costco for their “free” food and drinks, you don’t have to deal with unruly kids and crying toddlers running all over the place. For this event, no babies or children will be allowed. Only the 21 and older crowd are allowed as alcohol will be served.

General admissions will be $40 in advance or $60 at the door. You may buy discounted block of 25 tickets for $30 each ($750). For people who want to make themselves feel special, they could buy the early bird admission rate of $80, where you may enter the event through the VIP Entrance (perhaps the backdoor?) at 5:00pm, a full 30 minutes earlier than the general public. And if you really want to be special-special, you may opt for a VIP table at $1,000 and/or purchase things at an exclusive silent auction.

There will be restaurants, wineries and breweries serving their best dishes and drinks [hopefully]. As a ticket holder, you may enjoy an UNLIMITED sampling of the more than 100 local vendors. For more information about the event please visit www.MyEasterSeals.org or call (916) 979-6740.
