If you're looking for a very nice food and wine experience while contributing to a worthy cause this weekend, here's a notice we just received from Restaurant Thir13en at the corner of H and 13th streets downtown. I recently reviewed Thir13en and found plenty to like about the food, the people and the ambience.
Here'e the press release we received:
Restaurant Thir13en cordially invites you to join us for an outstanding nonprofit event as we host the John Kerr Foundation's 5th Annual Food & Wine Tasting on Saturday, April 28 from 5:30-9:30 p.m. This year's event will be held in our beautiful Hotel Ballroom located at 1300 H St. in downtown Sacramento. Come out and enjoy unlimited tastings from some of Sacramento's finest dining establishments and some delicious beer and wines from throughout the Northern California region, and all for a great cause!
At this year's event, the John Kerr Foundation is excited to present its first annual Rebecca Cushing Memorial Scholarship. Rebecca was a dear friend of the Foundation and they are delighted to honor her memory by granting a local student with Muscular Dystrophy with a scholarship and provide them opportunity to pursue further education. The scholarship presentation will take place at the event.
For more information about the Scholarship and the work of the Foundation, please visit their website: www.johnkerrfoundation.org
Additionally, there will be some outstanding Silent Auction items up for bid and incredible music provided by the JJ Cady trio.
