The ninth annual Harvest for Hope event on Sunday will bring together some of the finest chefs in San Diego for an afternoon of food, wine and music benefitting the Emilio Nares Foundation.
Diane and Richard Nares started the foundation in San Diego in 2002, just two years after they lost their son, Emilio, at age 5 to acute lymphoblastic leukemia. The foundation now serves more than 5,000 patients and families in San Diego and Orange counties, providing transportation to low-income and underprivileged families that have a child battling cancer. In addition to transportation, the foundation also provides information and resources to the families, according to a release.
The event costs $125 per person, and will take place at Stingaree in downtown San Diego on Sunday from 3 to 6 p.m. To RSVP online, go to www.emilionaresfoundation.org.
