Given that we can’t get enough of small plates restaurants, Brooklyn Flea’s Smorgasburg, food trucks, and the appetizer side of the menu, tasting events are pretty much our favorite thing in the world. So it is with mucho enthusiasm that we invite you to participate in “Plate by Plate” at Skylight West tomorrow to benefit Chinatown Youth Initiatives (CYI).
Presenting their 13th Annual Tasting Benefit, Plate by Plate, is a signature event produced nationwide in NYC, L.A. and San Francisco.
Showcasing the city’s premier restaurants, more than 550 food and wine lovers will gather to sample the city’s best. In between nibbling on exquisitely prepared bites and imbibing haute wine, peruse the silent auction, which will be chock-full of one-of-a-kind items, gift certificates, and other products generously donated from local and national vendors. And don’t forget to try your hand at the raffle: Winner takes home a pair of round-trip business class tickets.
Net proceeds from this year’s event will benefit Project by Project’s 2011 partner, Chinatown Youth Initiatives, a youth leadership organization dedicated to providing a safe space for New York City youth, and empowering them to be agents of social change in New York’s Chinatown and beyond. CYI embraces the philosophy that young people are not only tomorrow’s leaders but also leaders of today, and as such, we must help develop their ideas, passions, and skills to strengthen their sense of self worth, as well as their families, communities, and ultimately, our global community.
Good cause, good food, and of course, amazing venue. Buy tickets for tomorrow night here!
