Last night, Thursday, July 12, more than 300 Donors joined us for the eighth annual Summer in the City, an invitation-only event to thank our supporters held this year at the Orpheum Theatre. During the fun-filled evening, Trust patrons sampled tasty appetizers and complimentary beverages from our restaurant partners including Rosa Mexicano, Crave, Rock Bottom Brewery, Thom Pham’s Wondrous Azian Kitchen, The Capital Grille, Solera, Cosmos, Bradstreet Craftshouse, D’Amico Kitchen, Seven Sushi Ultralounge and Mission American Kitchen. Summit Beer was also on hand with refreshing beer samples and interesting tidbits from their Cicerone (a certified beer sever who works to ensure customers enjoy the flavors of the amber colored liquid to the greatest extent possible).
Guests also enjoyed behind-the-scenes tours of the historic Orpheum Theatre as well as exclusive demonstrations by top chefs and bartenders including how to make Fruit Explosions from Cosmos, Sake Floats from Thom Pham’s, Sushi from Seven, Caprese Salad Glasses from Crave and Fresh Guacamole from Rosa. Bradstreet Craftshouse and The Capital Grille added to the party with their own delicious beverage demonstrations.
Thanks to everyone who joined us and supports our work throughout the year. It was a wonderful evening with food, fun and excitement.
