Gourmet Wine-Paired Dinner by Top Chefs Benefits YMCA Family Services
One night a year, top chefs team up to create the spectacular Reaching for Stars 5-course dinner to benefit local at-risk and homeless teens. This year, on Thursday, April 26th , 6:30 pm at the Santa Barbara Women’s Club, the program will be enhanced with premium wines from Brander, Alma Rosa, Babcock, Flying Goat Cellars, Buscador, and Lumen specifically paired to the culinary creations.
The Reaching for Stars dinner is the principal fundraiser for Youth & Family Services (YFS), a branch of the Channel Islands YMCA. YFS comprises Noah’s Anchorage Youth Crisis Shelter–a licensed shelter for teens; My Home–providing transitional housing; Support and Outreach Services–assisting homeless teens and those in risk of losing their housing, and the St. George Youth Center–providing after-school support.
Tickets for the event are $250 and include the winemaker tasting, 5-course gourmet wine-paired dinner, and a souvenir wine glass. A limited number of table sponsorships from $1,000 - $10,000 are available to support YFS programs.
