What happens when you put all the Bay Area’s hottest chefs and vintners into one room? A literal explosion of deliciousness. The non-profit organization, Meals on Wheels San Francisco, which benefits homebound seniors in the San Francisco area, hosted the 25th Annual Star Chefs & Vintners Gala the other week.

The evening was a complete success, raising $1.9 million, that's 420,000 meals for seniors! Out of the 110 chefs and 70 vintners present, Charles Communications Associates was proud to support two of our clients in attendance, Parallel Wines and Wente Vineyards’ Executive Chef Matt Greco. Both Chef Matt and Parallel served their specialties during the reception, Chef Matt offering his famous lamb pastrami appetizer and Parallel pouring their distinguished Bordeaux Blend, Estate Cabernet Sauvignon and newly released Chardonnay.

This event was a testimony to how food and wine can come together and give back to the community. We live in a world of luxurious delicacies, and we feel it’s imperative to reflect on the wonders in our every day lives. Meals on Wheels reminds us to take action and support those less fortunate.

Thank you to all that participated!
