On Thursday November 12, City Fruit will be holding their 5th Annual Cider Taste Fundraiser event at the Pike Place Atrium from 6:30 to 9 PM. City Fruit is a non-profit based in Seattle that harvests fruit for local food banks.
The event will be a fun way to kick off the holidays in the right spirit with tons of perks. Guests receive a souvenir glass for tasting great Northwest ciders from ten cideries, including Alpenfire Organic Hard Cidery, Dragonhead Cider, Finnriver Farm & Cidery, Grizzly Ciderworks, Nashi Orchards, Seattle Cider Co., Schilling Cider, Snowdrift Cider, Tieton Cider Works and Whitewood Cider Co. The food will be just as outstanding with small plates and amuse bouche from chefs Ethan Stowell, Jerry Traunfeld, Thierry Rautureau, Daisley Gordon, John Sundstrom and Erik Jackson. The dishes will be designed to complement the cider tasting.
A live auction offers opportunities to take home cider-themed prizes and local experiences. If the event itself does not already sound like the swanky way to dive into cider season, the cause can speak for itself: All proceeds from the evening will go to the 2016 harvest of fruit, bringing fresh fruit to over 50 meal programs and food banks in the Seattle area. Get your tickets now to participate in a fun way to give back to the community.
