If you’re wondering what to do this weekend, here are a couple of last minute ideas for this Sunday, June 12. Grab the kids and head over to Mosaic Wine Bar in North Park as they host Hospitality for Hunger to raise awareness of child hunger in San Diego. This first annual event was conceived by Claude Renner –who manages hospitality, food and beverage at the Hotel Del Coronado– as a way to engage the community about giving back for a good cause. The event features chefs Amy DiBiase (consultant), Olivier Boiteau (Farm House Cafe) and Anthony Sinsay (Harney Sushi) for a barbecue and canned food donation drive…along with music and fun for the kids and more adult things into the evening. Information is here and all proceeds go to Feeding America San Diego, a very worthwhile organization. For more information: 858-452-3663.
For another give back event, Wine & Roses raises money for Camp Oliver, in Descanso, CA and other charities of Social Service Auxiliary. In its 28th year, the event takes place at the Westgate Hotel, from 3pm to 6:30pm for $65 ($75 at the door). Great restaurants and wineries supply tastes and the walkabout event is always a hit on the hotel’s rooftop. For information: (619) 517-5825
