Torino or Bust Fundraiser

July 26, 2014 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Torino or Bust
Eat, drink and support our Terra Madre delegates, with special guest Richard McCarthy, Slow Food USA executive director.

Please join us for an evening of celebration, connection and reconnection with Slow Food volunteer leaders from throughout Oregon, past and current Terra Madre delegates, their friends and families, members and nonmembers alike. Enjoy delicious local foods and regional wines, live jazz and raffle items. Meet the delegates who will travel to Italy this October and hear from select past delegates about how this international conference changed their lives and direction of their food production.

We’ll also hear from Richard McCarthy about current Slow Food programs and exciting plans for the future.

All proceeds from the reception support our eleven Oregon delegates with their travel expenses to Terra Madre in Turin, Italy this October. Terra Madre is a program sponsored by Slow Food International. Learn more about the event here.

This is a 21-and-over event.
