VINO LAS VEGAS supports the 20th Taste of the Nation at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino

Vino Las Vegas had the great pleasure of
supporting a very worth wine organization .
Share Our Strength's Taste of the Nation is in
its 2oth year of helping to end childhood hunger. Applauded as the first-ever culinary benefit in the nation and a model for successful fundraisers throughout the country, Taste of the Nation has raised more than $70 million over the last 20 years, and united thousands of chefs from across the United States and Canada in the fight against childhood hunger.

David Burke, one of the pioneers of American cuisine and this year’s national spokesperson prepared tastings for guests at Taste of the Nation Las Vegas and at Taste of the Nation Chicago .
Elaine spoke with Chef David Burke
at the Las Vegas event held at the
Hard Rock Hotel inside "The Joint"
His dedication to this organization is
to be commended. Chef Burke really takes his job as national spokesman to heart.

The guests were treated with a Red Carpet
walk and Champagne upon their entrance
into the famous venue of " The Joint"
Live music filled the air as we sampled food from such Las Vegas culinary
landmarks as Border Grill, Rosemary's , RM Seafood , Andres and Emerils Delmonico Steak House.

As we walked through this event it seemed surreal at times as we enjoyed great food and wine surrounded by Rock n Roll memorabilia which the Hard Rock is renowned for.

Guests also had the opportunity to bid on items in a live and silent auction that featured trips , dining and almost anything you could imagine.

Share Our Strength raised a significant amount of money this night for a wonderful cause. If Taste of the Nation is coming to your town, this is a great way to sample world class food and help end childhood hunger.
