Mark Your Calendars for September 18, 2011 to Support Our Senior Coastsiders

August 24, 2011: The Fifth Annual “Taste of the Coast” returns to Half Moon Bay on Sunday, September 18th, 2011, an event designed to delight participants by showcasing 30 Coastside restaurants and offering an exciting array of silent auction items – all to benefit Senior Coastsiders.

This festive, fun and food-filled event takes place from 5 PM to 8 PM in the Sea Crest School Gymnasium, located at 901 Arnold Way, Half Moon Bay, CA. Tickets are $50 per person in advance ($30 for Seniors 65+) and include delicious food, delightful music and the chance to win exciting door prizes. Admission will also be available at the door for $60. Two raffle tickets ($10 value) are included with each admission ticket. All proceeds benefit Senior Coastsiders.

Expect an evening of the best of the coast. Sample a wide variety of local specialties—succulent savories from fish tacos to filet mignon—and meet the masters behind the Coastside’s finest cuisine. Bid on fun coastal-themed items at the silent auction. Exciting prizes will be raffled off throughout the evening, while those who bring their dancing shoes can boogie to the music of Coastside favorite, Catie Chase & the Getaways. A no-host bar will be available.

In the words of repeat contributor, It’s Italia owner Betsy delFierro, “Participating in the ‘Taste of the Coast’ event since it began five years ago has been a joy for us at It’s Italia! Connecting with our neighbor restaurants, seeing and tasting each other’s new offerings, meeting new friends while reconnecting with old friends in our community, all under the umbrella of supporting a great cause really makes for a terrific fun fundraising fall afternoon each year.”
