April 15, 2009 > Tasters Showcase
Kidango knows how to entertain youngsters in a lively learning environment and once a year, they do the same for adults at Tasters Showcase. A veritable smorgasbord of sights, smells and tastes greet attendees who can travel throughout the culinary world without passports, travel restrictions or the cost of travel.
Live and silent auctions will accompany the feast as will plenty of libations from Thomas Coyne Winery and Wente Vineyards. Due to the popularity of this event, Tasters Showcase has moved to the Fremont Marriott. Fourteen restaurants including crowd favorites such as the Pampered Chef, TGI Fridays, BJ's Restaurant & Brewhous, Burrito Loco Taqueria and Jamba Juice will soothe appetites while the auctions offer bargains that can make the afternoon profitable as well. No matter what price is paid for auction items, Kidango comes out the winner!
Live Auction items include a week's stay at Datura Villa in Jamaica, or four days and three nights in a beautiful mountain cabin near Big Trees State Park. Silent Auction and raffle prizes include spa baskets and gift certificates to kids' destinations like Happy Hollow, Oakland Zoo, Children's Discovery Museum of San Jose, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and a family four-pack of tickets to California 's Great America.
Tickets are $35 in advance or $45 at the door. Advance tickets can be purchased by calling (510) 897-6912 or mailing/visiting Kidango Administrative Office, Taster's Showcase Tickets, 44000 Old Warm Springs Blvd., Fremont.
