Where do Pleasanton Education Partners gather every year to celebrate their collective support of the Pleasanton Unified School District? At the 10th Annual “Toasts & Tastes of Fall” Culinary Competition and Fundraiser on October 19, 2013, being held from 6:30 pm – 10:00 pm at the California Center in Pleasanton.
This annual Cocktail Party, Culinary Competition and Silent Auction features fifteen culinary teams comprised of a local chef, school principal and corporate/community sponsors who compete for “Top Nod and a Cash Prize” in one of three categories: “Savory” “Sweet” and – new this year- “Slow!”
You’ll join our official judges and taste your way through signature appetizers and desserts paired with fine wine – poured, paired and presented with the help of your school’s principal!
Guests will enjoy lively jazz music, and Emcee Juliette Goodrich of KPIX-TV will provide updates throughout the evening. As a tribute to partnerships, the no-host bar will be staffed by PUSD Administrators and nearby, the Pleasanton City Council will host the complimentary hors-d’oeuvres area. Silent Auction lots feature vacation and ‘stay-cation’ opportunities, dining and activities for the entire family- along with memorabilia, wines and specially-selected goods and services.
Join fellow residents, parents, business leaders, school district, civic and community leaders at this annual gala! Event proceeds benefit the foundation and its programs supporting the Pleasanton Unified School District. Last year, PPIE raised over $100,000 from the event and with your help, we hope to exceed that this year!
