Nosh on some of the Valley's best food offerings while helping out kiddies at the Noche de Gourmet 2009 event, sponsored by the Active 20-30 Club of Phoenix.
The annual shindig is a fundraiser sponsored by the "young professional men"'s club, which does community service in the Valley. As you eat goodies from restaurants such as Chelsea's Kitchen, Barrio Cantina & Grill and Il Terrazzo, you'll be helping the Children in Need Foundation, a nonprofit benefitting local children's charities.
In addition to gorging, attendees can also enjoy live music by dance band STATIC!, a silent auction and a raffle. Dress is cocktail attire, so you'll look all fancy while helping the community.
Noche de Gourmet goes down Saturday, November 14 at the Tempe Center for the Arts. Tickets are $75 and include wine and beer. VIP tickets, for $150, include premium bar drinks and access to additional entertainment areas. For more info, log on to http://www.phoenix2030.com/events/noche/.
