I’m super pumped about this weekend because Eric and I are going to Taste of the Nation in Orlando! I’ve heard so much about this event and saw pics of this food loving event last year from friends that attended.
And it’s for a great cause– to help raise funds to end childhood hunger. More than 30 of Orlando’s top chefs will be creating appetizers, entrees and desserts to share with us, and there will also be live entertainment and auctions.
The best part about of this event is that ALL of the proceeds from sales go to two local charities– Coalition for the Homeless and Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. These two charities are important to me and I stay involved with them through our church ministry and other projects that I’ve participated on in the past so it’s cool that this event will be benefiting them!
