LOS ANGELES, May 30, 2017 – Hillsides, a Southern California foster care charity, is hosting its eighth   annual Farm to Table dinner on June 25 in Pasadena.  This outdoor event features local farm-fresh cocktails and fare at a private estate in Pasadena, Ca.  Noted restaurateur Claud Beltran, owner of the Pasadena restaurants the Eatery and Bacchus’ Kitchen, will serve as chef for the evening.  A steel drum musician will be on hand to serenade guests.  

“This event is always magical, and this year promises to be even more so due to the stunning location,” said Hillsides Chief Advancement Officer Carrie Espinoza.  “The estate includes a lake, bocce ball court and spectacular views of the San Gabriel Valley, and is the perfect backdrop to enjoying some of the area’s best dishes prepared by the incomparable Claud Beltran and his team at Claud and Co catering.”

During the evening, a former resident of Hillsides will speak about how his years at the charity transformed his life.  Guests will also have the chance to answer the summer wishes of the teens who live in Hillsides residential treatment group homes. 

The event is open to members of Hillsides’ young professional group, H100, and to those in the community who would like to support Hillsides. For H100 members, the cost is $125 per person.  For non-members, the cost is $175.  The cost to join H100 is $100 per household, and there will be an opportunity to join at the dinner.  Besides the discounted rate to the Farm to Table dinner, other benefits of joining H100 include complimentary invitations to a Fall Social in 2017 and a Spring Social in 2018.
