Posted by cmh gourmand on April 25, 2008

Three events are coming up that allow you to support good causes while sampling wonderful wine and fine food.

The Grape Event
Friday, May 2nd
Benefits the ALS Association of Central and Southern Ohio

An evening of fine wines with hors d’oeuvres. The Grape Event also hosts a live and silent auction featuring wines, sports memorabilia, electronics, and other gift packages. Each year local artist Robert Patricy creates a special wine themed painting as the logo for the event. The original canvas oil painting is auctioned off. Prints from prior years are also for sale. Bob is my friend and I have two prints in my house. (This is my disclaimer.)

North Market Apron Gala
Saturday, May 17
7 to 10 PM

The 12th Annual North Market Apron Gala!! Run amuck in the North Market eating, drinking and making merry with your apron on and your mouth open for the goodies galore in store for you. Items come from the North Market merchants. There is also beer from CBC and music from the Eileen Howard Trio. A silent auction for great gift packages is featured as well.

And – another North Market event worth going to…while on the subject.

Cinco D’Ohio

Not to miss – the salsa, taco, and hot sauce taste offs. Yum.
