I have a super awesome giveaway for my local readers today!!
A about 2 years ago when I first started blogging I had heard about Taste of the Nation from various blogs that I read. I was super jealous they had these awesome events to attend. I did some googling and learned that there was a semi local taste of nation that happened once a year in Hartford CT!
Ever since hearing about this event I have been dying to go. Well, wouldn’t you know that this year on Thursday April 11th from 6pm-9pm I get to attend!
What is Taste of the Nation® about?
“It is the nation’s premier culinary benefit dedicated to making sure no kid in America grows up hungry. Each spring and summer, the nation’s hottest chefs and mixologists donate their time, talent and passion at nearly 40 Taste of the Nation events across the United States and Canada, with one goal in mind: to raise the critical funds needed to end childhood hunger in America. Since 1988, Taste of the Nation has raised more than $86 million.”
