Food for good: The Wine & Food Tasting Extravaganza turns 20

Last year’s Wine & Food Tasting Extravaganza

Live piano music will set the vibe as attendees stroll through the 10,000-square-foot Industrial Event Space on Industrial Road north of Sahara Avenue. Guests will nibble on delights at live food stations, sample wine and bid on items in the silent auction.

The 20th Annual Wine & Food Tasting Extravaganza benefits two programs at Nathan Adelson Hospice, the only nonprofit hospice in the Valley. The event started 20 years ago as a fundraiser for the organization’s pediatric program. As insurance companies began to recognize and cover pediatric hospice services, the fundraiser added a new beneficiary: the Families in Need Program, which helps families cover basic necessities such as groceries and utility bills.

“Regardless of their ability to pay, we will take care of a patient as long as they’re a resident in Southern Nevada,” says Stephanie Forbes, the development manager for Nathan Adelson Hospice Foundation. “We gave to the community almost $2.2 million last year in uncompensated care.”

Food vendors include Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab; Tomo Noodles and Dumplings; Zenaida’s Cafe; Craft Kitchen; Crazy Pita and P.F. Chang’s. Johnson Brothers will provide the wine.

“Our first priority is to our patients and their families and making sure that no patient ends the journey of life alone, afraid or in pain,” Forbes says.

Wine & Food Tasting Extravaganza October 3, 5-8 p.m. $125. The Industrial Event Space, 2330 S. Industrial Road, nah.org.
