Do This: Share Our Strength's "A Tasteful Pursuit" Dinner at Spiaggia

2010_09_ATP.jpg Share Our Strength just had a rousing success with its Taste of the Nation event at the Aragon Ballroom, but the non-profit's efforts to help rid America of childhood hunger by 2015 haven't ended. Their Great American Dine Out is currently ongoing — for participating restaurants, click here —and they've enlisted an All-Pro team of chefs for their "A Tasteful Pursuit" dinner series, which lands at Spiaggia November 17.

Joining Spiaggia's Tony Mantuano and Sarah Greuneberg in the kitchen for this dinner will be Paul Kahan, Terzo Piano's Megan Neubeck, Takashi Yagihashi of Takashi and Marc Vetri of Vetri in Philadelphia. There will also be live bid and silent auctions during the dinner, with all proceeds going to Share Our Strength and its local beneficiaries. Given the caliber of the chefs involved and the charitable endeavors behind the event, $150 seems like a steal, doesn't it? To purchase tickets, click here.

Share Our Strength's "A Tasteful Pursuit" dinner, 980 N. Michigan Ave., 3rd Floor, November 17, 6 p.m. reception, 7 p.m. dinner.
