16 Mar Please The Palate Pick of the Week: Masters of Taste
Homelessness is a major issue in the United States and especially in Los Angeles County where there are more than 53,195 homeless people. Luckily, there are a number of wonderful organizations that are working to eliminate homelessness and one of them is Union Station Homeless Services, a 501(c)3 organization. To raise money for Union Station Homeless Services, they host a very fun event called Masters of Taste and that is the Please The Palate pick of the week.
I have been involved in charity events where I have heard first hand about people’s stories. Homelessness can really happen to anyone of us. Many people live paycheck to paycheck and it only takes missing a paycheck or two and having no support network locally.
At Union Station Homeless Services, their mission is to help individuals and families rebuild their lives and end homelessness. The organization was founded in 1973 and today they help individuals and families “identify the causes that led to their homelessness, and provide the tools and resources they need to end their cycle of homelessness and lead productive and stable lives.”
Masters of Taste is a food and beverage event that raises money for Union Station Homeless Services. This year will be the fourth year of the event, which has raised more than $1.5 million to date! And, we can all help them raise more by attending the event on Sunday, April 7th from 4:00pm-7:00pm.
Masters of Taste takes place on the field of the Rose Bowl in Pasadena! Chefs, wineries, breweries and spirit brands are stationed around the field and guests wander across the yard lines, eating and drinking for a great cause!
Usually the Please The Palate pick of the week is something that was already experienced and that is no exception this week. That is because I had the privilege to attend a media preview where we got to go inside the locker room at the Rose Bowl (as it was raining outside).
And now I can share this wonderful event for you to still attend! Tickets are $105 and 100% of the event proceeds benefit Union Station Homeless Services, a 501(c)(3) organization. It is time to end homelessness in our community and we can be a part of the solution! So, buy your tickets today and eat and drink for a good cause. If you attend Masters of Taste, you will understand why it is the Please The Palate pick of the week.
To see how fun the event is, check out my post from when I attended the event in 2017.
