Fine Fare, Fun and Fundraising!

at The Art Institute of California – San Diego

San Diego, CA 92108
AIWF San Diego has a special relationship with The Art Institute, which has hosted many past events with its students preparing fabulous multi-course dinners. So where better to celebrate our Days of Taste® program this year than at the Palette Dining Room with the students creating and serving another exciting new menu! They have decided to do this year’s dinner buffet style. Alexis Wells, one of our 2017 scholarship winners will be one of the student chefs. Joe Schlegel, another of our scholarship winners, will speak to us about what it takes to become a Sommelier. He is currently a distributor for The Henry Wine Group.
As you all know, the money we raise at our events goes to scholarships and to our Days of Taste® program. This is our annual event when we ask you to give generously to support just the Days of Taste® program.
We will be holding both a silent and live auction with some wonderful items for you to savor.
We will honor our longtime Days of Taste® chairperson and coordinator, Dr. Lee Jaret, who is stepping down this year.
Days of Taste®, is a three day program, which has been a vital part of our San Diego Chapter for many years. It is designed for underserved fourth and fifth grade students to learn about food and how it weaves its way through daily life from farm to table. Under the excellent leadership of Dr. Lee Jaret, children experience the taste of fresh local produce, how to prepare food, and are exposed to the different foods and basic nutrition principles that we hope will remain with them into adulthood.
We encourage you to support our fundraiser for this wonderful program: We’re not just nourishing our youth – we’re nurturing the AIWF members and leaders of tomorrow!
Join us for this delightful evening and bring a bottle of your favorite wine ($25 or under) to share with your table.
