A great event....

I know, I know... for someone who recently blogged about how much he doesn't like special events, it's odd for me to plug one. However, I have a great deal of respect for Share Our Strength, and their Taste of the Nation event is always a highlight of special event season here in Dallas:

Share Our Strength's Taste of the Nation: Dallas

In addition to being a successful fundraiser, the event is a great form of cause marketing... for both the non-profit beneficiaries as well as the corporate sponsors. It is also a great advocacy and awareness piece that gets out the message of the prominence of hunger in our community.

Thanks to American Express for their support of this program, and to chef Stephan Pyles for leading the team of chefs that gather to make this event a success.

(Now, if only I find a way to get CDM added to the list of beneficiaries....) :)
