Taste & Tribute SF: Benefit to support Tibetans and Buddhist wisdom

|5:30 pm||to||10:59 pm|
On Friday, November 22, a major group of San Francisco’s notable chefs and winemakers will once again team up for the 13th annual Taste & Tribute gala benefiting the Tibetan Aid Project. The Tibetan Aid Project’s mission is to support the culture and spiritual heritage of Tibet.
Tickets for this seated dinner, priced at $350, are available through the event’s website, http://www.tasteandtributesf.com/contact-us/.
The Tibetan Aid Project helps exiled Tibetans rebuild, preserve, and strengthen their cultural and spiritual heritage. The key project that is strengthened by the Taste & Tribute gala is the binding and distribution of sacred and rare Tibetan texts to Tibetan refugees throughout Asia. These treasured texts are presented annually at the World Peace Ceremony in Bodh Gaya, India, where over ten thousand Tibetans, many of whom travel by walking for days, gather each year to offer prayers for peace and the well-being of all humanity and the restoration of peace to the world. To date, almost four million books have been distributed, thanks to an all-volunteer staff and supportive donors.
This years’ gala will once again be held in the ballroom of the Four Seasons Hotel in San Francisco. A silent auction with champagne and hors d’oeuvres will precede the dinner. The gala then begins with a ceremony to honor the chefs, follows to the seated dinner, prepared tableside by the participating chefs, and concludes with a live auction and short film screening.
About the Tibetan Aid Project: Volunteers in the Bay Area have worked to restore and reconnect Tibetans to their cultural heritage. The Tibetan Aid Project has assisted in donating over 3.7 million books in the Tibetan language, helping to keep an endangered culture strong. The shipments to India each year are made possible thanks to supportive donors and an all volunteer staff.
