Want a chance at winning an eight course tasting menu at the renowned Cyrus Restaurant (two stars from The Michelin Guide) and a stay at Hotel Healdsburg? Or perhaps you’d rather go deep undercover with Michael Bauer, The San Francisco Chronicle’s esteemed restaurant critic and Executive Food editor, while adding your two-cents worth to critiquing a new restaurant?
Does an escape from the city for a night for a little romance at Meadowood Napa Valley resort (enhanced by two 60-minute luxury spa treatments) or an action-packed stay in the Big Apple sound tempting?
These are just a few of the awesome auction items that you can bid on at Summertini 2011. If you’d like to do your part to help end homelessness AND enjoy a fantastic funfilled evening, come show your support for ECS at our annual SummerTini celebration benefiting the CHEFS program!
While you enjoy an evening of signature martinis, wine, and specialty hors d’oeuvres from several of San Francisco’s acclaimed chefs and vendors, we will be hosting a live auction featuring unique travel packages and scrumptious dining experiences. Delightful raffle prizes will also be awarded throughout the evening.
CHEFS (Conquering Homelessness through Employment in Food Services) is our culinary training program that finds employment in the food industry for homeless adults. This 12-month program includes classroom instruction, hands-on kitchen training, job counseling, and placement with coaching and follow-up.
CHEFS students receive additional support with GED preparation, basic literacy and resume writing through the Skills Center. More than 80 percent of CHEFS graduates find work in restaurants, hotels, and nursing homes.
Join us for Summertini and help us ensure that our CHEFS program remains strong and continues to provide education and support to homeless adults in San Francisco.
