Poway OnStage's Delivers a TASTE OF OUR TOWNE 6/17
Poway OnStage's annual fundraiser Taste Of Our Towne: A Premiere Culinary Arts and Wine Tasting Event will be on the Plaza at Poway Center for the Performing Arts Saturday, June 17, 2017 from 5:00-9:30pm. This fundraiser features over 25 of North County's finest restaurants, wineries and breweries - all offering samples of their signature dishes and sips, live music, dancing, live and silent auctions, and prizes. Returning as the Master of Ceremonies is Poway Deputy Mayor, Jim Cunningham.
"Taste of Our Towne has become a cherished climax to our season - a chance to gather with supporters, friends and neighbors under balmy summer skies in front of the PCPA," says Michael Rennie, President and CEO of Poway OnStage. "Six years in, this event has attracted many loyal fans. This year we'd like to invite people who haven't yet been to Taste to join us to celebrate the best of what our area has to offer."
Guests will be greeted at the door with a glass of champagne, live entertainment in the lobby and the opportunity to bid on a variety of silent auction items. The party then moves outside to the plaza for food and drink, a live auction and entertainment from the Kicks band. The live auction will feature unique items for guests to bid upon. At the end of the evening there will be a Safe Ride Home, sponsored by GEICO, for any attendees who choose to use the door to door transportation service. Taste of Our Towne is a party with a purpose. This event raises funds in support of the Poway OnStage's Professional Performance Series and Art in Education Initiative. The Arts in Education Initiative program's programs include Introduction to Instruments; a free week-long Theater Camp; Master Classes and discounted youth tickets made possible by GEICO. All told, Poway OnStage serves more than 4,300 Poway-area students with Arts programs they would not otherwise have.
