Tickets to Pear Bridge Dinner Now Available for Purchase
This special dinner event is being held simultaneously with the incredibly popular Tower Bridge Gala organized by the Sacramento Convention & Visitor’s Bureau as part of their America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital program. In the heart of one of the largest pear-growing regions in California, the Pear Bridge Dinner takes place Sunday, September 27, 2015 beginning at 4:00 p.m. on the small, historically named Dead Horse Island Bridge near the Delta community of Walnut Grove.
Mark and Linda Morais, third generation owners of Giusti’s Place in Walnut Grove, will prepare the meal using locally-raised meats and other Delta-grown crops such as corn, tomatoes, endive, and, of course, pears. Delta area wines will be served along with local beers and other specialties prepared by select Sacramento Farm-to-Fork restaurant chefs. Each person will be allowed to reserve no more than four tickets at a price of $125 each. To reserve tickets, please send an e-mail to the California Pear Advisory Board at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note the event is for people over the age of 21.
The California Pear Advisory Board is a non-profit organization made up of farmers who grow pears in California. The cost of Pear Bridge Dinner tickets is meant to cover expenses only. Any money remaining after costs are covered will be donated to a local charity.
“In the tradition of the Farm-to-Fork Gala Dinner, we’re building bridges between Sacramento’s vast farmland and the people of Sacramento.” –Chris Zanobini, Executive Director, California Pear Advisory Board
