All proceeds from the annual event will benefit the Fulfillment Fund, a nonprofit college access organization that helps make college a reality for thousands of students growing up in educationally and economically under-resourced communities in Los Angeles.
“Taste of Summer is more than just a tasting event. We provide a platform for collaborative and culinary expression, giving guests a chance to taste some of the best chefs in L.A., while also helping under-resourced students get one step closer to a college education. There are so many causes out there worth supporting, but there are few things better than investing in the future leaders of America,” said Jeremy Delaplane, Fulfillment Fund Leadership Council Board Member and Founder of Venice Winter Ventures.
