Published on Jun 2, 2021

AbilityFirst in Pasadena is holding tits anticipated annual gourmet Food and Wine Festival on Sunday, June 6, featuring live-cast chef demonstrations, drink pairings, an online auction and wonderful stories from AbilityFirst participants and their families.

For more than 47 years, this signature event has brought together gourmet delicacies, drinks and desserts with some of the region’s top culinary chefs, restaurants and beverage companies.

This year, the only difference is that AbilityFirst is bringing the experience into your home, going live at 6 p.m. Sunday.

Proceeds will go to AbilityFirst programs supporting children and adults with disabilities.

There are several options to choose from as you support AbilityFirst programs.

You can be a table host by purchasing a table of four, six or 10 and share the AbilityFirst mission with your guests. You and your guests will begin with the VIP beer pairing from Golden Road Brewery. For the main program, you will enjoy a wonderful meal and wine provided by a partner restaurant while enjoying the program and online auction. Each table host will be gifted a host/hostess box with parting gifts for guests.

You can also buy a VIP single ticket and enjoy a Blaze DIY pizza kit along with a beer pairing with a demo from Golden Road Brewery, then move on to the main program and online auction.

You can also be a sponsor and receive heightened visibility before, during and after the virtual event. Benefits can include table host opportunities, inclusion in the digital event program, your logo on event websites and social media mentions.

Or you can purchase a general admission ticket, enjoy the program from the comfort of your own home, and join the fun by bidding in the online auction.
