It’s time for second helpings!
The Nevada City Rotary Club is once again presenting “The Hungry GamesII” a major fundraiser dedicated to food, wine and the fine art of gourmet cooking on Sunday, March 15, from 5 to 8 pm in the Miners Foundry.
This year, Nevada City’s hugely popular Ham Stand takes over cooking duties following last year’s first place win among competing restaurants. Owner/chef Jason Jillson promises four different gourmet tastings from around the world and will compete with Rene, his own sous chef. Three wineries will offer pairing tastings to go with the food.
Following up on last year’s huge success, the highlights will include a “winner-take-all” raffle for $1,000 worth of $100 meals from 10 of the top regional restaurants.
There will be a silent auction of a variety of items along with cookbooks, kitchen and other items for sale. Chefs will be discussing their craft and the Sgt. Funky band will provide live music for listening and dancing, all in a fun and exciting setting.
All proceeds from the event will go to help fund the many Nevada City Rotary community service initiatives. The club sponsors local youth programs such as Girls Who Code, an afterschool program that encourages and trains middle school girls for careers in technology, youth leadership camps, academic scholarships, and high school music and speech competitions, along with community service forums presented by community radio station KVMR.
Rotary members also fly to Mexico’s rural Southern Baja every year to perform health screening on local students and adults. The Club also participates in Rotary International clean water projects and polio eradication.
General admission is $25 in advance, $30 at the door, which includes tastings from the chef competition and local wineries. Event tickets can be obtained at Inner Sanctum, Book Seller, Harmony Books and from your Rotary friends.
Raffle tickets to win $1,000 in restaurant gift certificates are $100 and will include one general admission ticket. The raffle will be limited to 100 tickets. Raffle tickets can be obtained at Inner Sanctum and from Nevada City Rotarians. Raffle tickets will also be available at the event. Raffle winner does not have to be present to win.
