The Cause

SDCOL’s most important fundraiser and a San Diego foodie mainstay, “Eat. Drink. Read.” is much more than fun food and wine pairings. The event raises much needed funds to support the nonprofit’s 29 affiliated literacy programs that annually serve more than 179,000 residents of all ages at no cost.

Flowing Beverages and Awards

Complementing an array of savory and sweet tastings, beverages will also be flowing at the event, with San Diego brewers, distillers and winemakers sharing their libations. The event will also showcase live music and a chef battle – with awards presented by celebrity judges for “Best Dish,” “Best Dessert,” “Best Display” and “People’s Choice.”
