Plates Cafe & Catering
The world of food and wine is a fascinating place to spend your life. It runs such an incredible spectrum…from the utterly necessary to the unquestionably indulgent. We participated in an event last week that brought both ends of that spectrum together in an incredible way. We were the featured winery at a fundraising dinner that raises money to get homeless and abused women off the street, equip them to work in the culinary industry though a 600 hour training program and then find them employment and get them back on their feet. The program is sponsored by St. John’s of Sacramento and held at Plate’s Café in South Sacramento. As is often the case in this universe, not only was it a great cause, but a REALLY good time to boot. The folks who attend these dinners are totally into food and wine, energetic, and gracious - and they even said nice things about the Andis Wines : ). If you live in the Sacramento area you might want to check it out! A lovely, lovely evening.
