Taste Of Compassion Returns Jan. 21

More than 25 chefs from the American Culinary Federation, Palm Beach County Chapter and a variety of local restaurants will join together for the ninth annual Taste of Compassion, a gourmet event to benefit Quantum House. The food and wine tasting will take place Monday, Jan. 21 at 7 p.m. at the Harriet Himmel Theater in CityPlace. A VIP reception will be held at 6 p.m.

Taste of Compassion benefits Quantum House, a nonprofit hospital hospitality house that provides lodging for more than 500 family members each year while their children are receiving treatments for serious medical conditions in Palm Beach County. Sponsors include PNC Bank, Woolems Construction, FPL, St. Mary’s Medical Center and the Palm Beach Post.

Taste of Compassion will feature an array of epicurean offerings, from four different courses and a selection of more than 65 wines presented by Southern Wine & Spirits. Guests will enjoy tastes from participating restaurants and clubs, including the Breakers, Bear’s Club and Paddy Mac’s.

“We thank the chefs from these fine restaurants, clubs and hotels for donating their time and talents to put on an incredible evening of culinary delights,” said Ken Wade, event chairman and proprietor of Paddy Mac’s in Palm Beach Gardens. “Their generosity shows true compassion for the children and families in residence at Quantum House.”

Taste of Compassion will also feature a silent auction consisting of items for the foodie at heart, as well as live entertainment.
