VINO LAS VEGAS helps support Three Square at the DISH event in Las Vegas

More than 210,000 people in Las Vegas struggle every day with hunger. It is hard to accept that in a city where 44 million tourists enjoy the best in food and drink in the world , so many of them own do not know where or when they will get their next meal.

Three Square was founded in 2006 to provide a consistent supply of nutritious food to local non-profit and faith-based organizations serving people in need. Through collaborative partnerships, Three Square has emerged as a new national model for how to move millions of pounds of nutritious food more quickly and efficiently than traditional food banks.

We were pleased and honored to join host, David Arquette, Kerry Simon and Rick Moonen, along with other renowned chefs and celebrities in providing a delicious array of gourmet food, fine wines, and live musical entertainment. The event also featured “Signature Dish,” which is an annual juried art exhibition of local artists, celebrity chefs and top entertainers who have been invited to present their artwork on dinner plates that will then be auctioned off.

Award winning Chefs Kerry Simon , Rick Moonen and Wolfgang Puck demonstrated their artistry for all to see and enjoy. But not to be outdone, many of the Chefs from Wynn and Encore came together as one culinary force and provided some of the best creations of the day. The Kobe Beef sliders were just but one of their creations and was very big hit among the guests.

Model/Actress Susan Anton and actor David Arquette directed most of the DISH activities from the main stage and kept things rolling smoothly from event to event and into the Silent Auction
which raised thousands of dollars. This years DISH event really showed how a collaboration of celebrities, renown chefs, beverage distributors and the public can all work together to help those who need it the most.

Three Square has an amazing variety of ways to help people who are in need.

Just One Thing
Ending hunger is a formidable challenge, but it’s something we can achieve if we work together as a community. If everyone in Southern Nevada did just one thing – no matter how small – to help provide food to the food-insecure, we could change the face of our city forever.

DISH Las Vegas, is an interactive culinary arts event like nothing you’ve ever seen before in Las Vegas. Our first event will be Friday, April 3, 2009, at the Las Vegas Springs Preserve. Click here for more information.

Three Square would like to wish a special thank you to all participating restaurants.
